Limit your visitors both in the hospital and at home for the first week or two.
Breastfeeding can be tricky and having additional eyes on you when you and your baby are learning can be really difficult.
In the beginning, you may want to nurse with your shirt off or lying down and it’s difficult to do if you are hosting well-meaning visitors. Soon you’ll be nursing like a pro in public but until then, give yourself a break!
