* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

default beach / swimwear when breastfeeding - help!

Post by Helen on Fri Mar 14, 2008 2:08 pm

i dont no if i sound a bit thick but what does everyone do about nursing when sunbathing / swimming?

now i dont mean the actual nursing part - i mean about breastpads? because when i have my breastpads in my bra you can see them very clearly (dont no if its cos of my big boobs but they only just cover my nipple and areola! lol) and if i've got a bikini on i dont really fancy the pads showing lol. but also dont fancy wet patches from my milk leaking! but also dont fancy soggy breastpads from going in the water! is there some special kind of pad i can get for the water and one that doesnt show so much?

also do companies make nursing swimwear? just had a quick look on the internet but can only find maternity. just thought it would be a bit easier! :boob:

I wonder if the washable breastpads would work whilst swimming?

Sorry I can't think of a better suggestion.

You will probably find them cheaper on ebay, they are silicone.
