Reply To: Occupy your toddlers whilst breast feeding

I used to find this really tricky. My daughter got into a habit of saving up a mini-tantrum or toilet “accident” to grab my attention back when her little brother first arrived. Your tips are great Sarah, one thing I found worked too was limiting TV or DVD time at other times of the day, and letting my toddler girl choose something special to watch with me whilst I was feeding. I could breastfeed one-handed most of the time, and she called my spare arm for cuddles on the sofa her “Ella-arm”. (Her name is Ella …) It helped show her that I still had space for her too!
