With a growing number of new mums swearing by a breastfeeding bracelet to help them combat baby brain, why is this simple tool helping to make nursing easier?
Like it or not, babies have a well-earned reputation for being sensitive little creatures. Considering that most aspects of their environment are controlled until they get older, parents are in charge of regulating everything from their exposure to noise, their body temperature and their feeding schedule - but what about looking after the new mum?
Let the baby fed without any hurdle
The fourth trimester, or the first twelve weeks of having a baby at home with you, can be incredibly hard. While baby and mum both adjust to their new lives together, learning how to change, care for and feed a baby is often cited as a big challenge and a complete joy.
Many new mums have noted breastfeeding as one of the biggest curveballs to navigate, particularly when it comes to remembering the best practices while juggling a newborn. In fact, it’s for this reason that a growing number of parents are using a breastfeeding bracelet to help them during the process. This can help to continue any and all activities even while breastfeeding.
UNPACKING THE POWER OF BREASTFEEDING REMINDER BRACELETS
For mums that are able to do so, breastfeeding has been proven to offer a wide range of health benefits to both the mother and the baby. Breastfed babies have been proven to have improved visual acuity, enhanced motor and cognitive development and are better protected against a range of serious health conditions such as gastroenteritis, respiratory illnesses, allergies and sudden unexpected death in infancy.
Despite the potential benefits, society places enormous pressure on new mothers when it comes to breastfeeding without issue. From sterilising bottles, staying hydrated, waking through the night and even watching what you eat, new mothers have a lot to juggle when it comes to following the do’s and don’ts of breastfeeding, such as remembering to change breasts during feeding times. Yes, there is a lot that goes into keeping a baby fed. It does not have to be hard, though; there are ways in which you can conveniently identify which breast goes next.
Switching breasts while breastfeeding at the appropriate time will ensure your baby is getting both the foremilk, which is the first, watery, thinner milk that comes out, in addition to the hind milk at the end, which is thicker, more caloric and has a higher fat content. Sounds simple enough, right?
Well, when coupled with a lack of sleep, it's easy to see why ‘baby brain’ is considered to be a very real thing. The term refers to memory problems, poor concentration and absent-mindedness reported by many women during pregnancy and early motherhood and can make things like remembering to change breasts during feeds significantly more difficult to do. Once you get the baby fed, it is much easier to turn a bracelet inside out and conveniently identify which breast to use next time.
This is where the magic of using a breastfeeding bracelet comes in. Breastfeeding reminder bracelets are such a simple concept but one that many mums are embracing in droves. In simple terms, a nursing bracelet is an item that is mounted on double strength cord so they are fully baby proof, yet are easy to take on and off as and when you need to. With the baby fed, mother may prefer to turn the bracelet inside out or right side up.
The idea is to simply switch the device to the arm that you wear it on, depending on which side you’re feeding from. At the end of the feeding session, pop your breastfeeding bracelet onto the other wrist and when the baby is ready for another feed, there’s no doubt on which side to feed from. When you want the baby fed again, you can conveniently identify which breast is best.
While there’s plenty of breastfeeding reminder bracelets to choose from in today’s marketplace, try to source one that is soft and smooth, and made from material that won’t break if little hands happen to get curious. Although it may be tempting to pick a nursing bracelet with lots of embellishments or bright colours, keep in mind that its primary job is to take the pressure off your brain. At the end of the day, we want a baby fed well and a simple process like turning a bracelet inside out to conveniently identify which breast to use next.
For new mums looking to minimise the number of baby accessories that they need to cart around with them, NursElet is a breastfeeding clip that holds up a mother's shirt while nursing. When nursing itself is done, it can become a breastfeeding bracelet with a subtle, yet comfortable and effective design that has you covered for next time. On the hunt for more multifunctional devices as a new mum? You’ve come to the right place.
