Breastfeeding Support from Partners

Breastfeeding may be “natural,” but that doesn’t mean it is easy! It takes practical and emotional support from partners, friends, and family members for breastfeeding to go well. How can partners be supportive of breastfeeding in the early days and months?

• Limit visitors

• Take the baby for awhile

• Give a massage

• Plan time so she can sleep

• Just listen and offer support

• Be an advocate for nursing

• Wash the pump kit

• Feed pumped breastmilk at some feedings

• Be a “breastfeeding coach”

• Call a professional if things aren’t going well!
