4. Invest in Lightweight Nursing Clothes
In the winter, layering a nursing tank top under sweaters and cardigans made for easy access. But nobody wants to wear layers in the summer heat. Purchasing lightweight nursing t-shirts, wrap dresses and pajamas will help you stay cool and comfortable without having to lift your entire shirt over your head.
5. Sunscreen for Everyone
Sun protection is critically important for both mom and baby. Not only will a sunburn (on either of you) make nursing uncomfortable, it also increases the risk for skin cancer. Take sun protection seriously and talk to your doctor about age-appropriate sun protection for infants and toddlers.
6. Nurse in the Water
You have to be in the right setting for this one, but you can really relax and stay cool by nursing in the water. Don’t try this in ocean waves, but seated on a step or bench in the shallow end of a family pool, for example, would be a great way to stay comfortable while nursing.
