We have a busy household and it’s not always easy to go to a quiet place to breastfeed. Any tips on how to keep him focused on a breastfeed and not his sister/dad/dog etc?

  • Haha its a tricky one! If possible a quiet room. If not perhaps a small toy they can hold/fiddle with while feeding? Goodluck, it’s not easy

  • You can by these little clips to attach to your top which has like coloured beads on it which encourages the Bub to focus on that while feeding, not sure what they are called but I’m sure you can google it

  • Pick a comfortable, secluded spot in the house, preferably where you son close the door. May not be an option with another child, but you didn’t specify age, so it might be an option

  • yeah have to get him somewhere quiet or see if he is just happy to sit there and watch all the commotion of the household.

  • Try and have a lie down on your bed and take him with you and feed him there, you never know he might even fall asleep as well while feeding :)
