Getting Ready for Breastfeeding-Your Nursing Area

My Nursing Area is the curve of my sectional couch. I can nurse in my favorite position “natural” or the “Laid back”, and sit Indian style. The kitchen table bumps up right against the back of the couch so my glass or bottle of water has a place and/or snacks. There is a plug right behind the couch on the other side perfect for my pump, and charge my phone or Kindle Fire. Also, the window is within reach so I can open the curtain and let some light in.

Here is a link to a post that talks about a lot of the things you should think about before the day you come home with your little pumpkin.

Your Nursing Area.


About Blessed Are The Mothers

My name is Lisa Horstkamp and I am a private practice lactation counselor and a Birth and bereavement Doula. I became a certified doula with stillbirthday as of October 2015. I am a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC) with The Healthy Children Project of April 2015. CLC Scope of practice: SBD Doula Principles of Service (Scope) I'm a southern woman born and bred. I am raising my "Southern Bell" and "bubba" the way I see fit. I started out breastfeeding my oldest but without good support I ended up using formula and not meeting my breastfeeding goal. I breastfed my youngest for 33 months, until he no longer requested, far out reaching my original goal of 6 months. It would not have been possible without the abundant support from my IBCLC and other breastfeeding moms in the support group at our local hospital. I'm on path to become an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in the next few years and looking forward to increasing support for my area.
