Every year in the month of August (1-7), the World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is celebrated across the globe. The importance of mothers milk for new born babies is known to one and all. However, to emphasize the significance of breastfeeding especially for first six months, UNICEF, WHO and WABA decided to attribute an entire week to the cause—highlighting the health benefits of mothers' milk.

So, we decided to come up with something for the travelling mommies. So, all the yummy mommies travelling with their breastfed babies can take a look at some handy tips which might be helpful to you while you pack your bags!

Be a little attentive to what you choose to wear. Opt for loose and comfortable clothes—as your baby might need nursing anytime and any moment. So, to avoid any discomfort related to the type of clothes you wear in public, be careful of what you choose. There are plenty of options available in various stores for new mommies. Like the type of inner wear or bustier, which can help you in feeding the child. Take your pick wisely!

Also, make it a point to stack up some extra diapers, baby cloth and baby wipes with you. Even if you travel by car, train or air—after you breastfeed the child, your baby will surely burp, so you might need some extra handy tissues to wipe off the milk.

Be prepared to keep all the handy stuff near you and happy travelling. Don't forget to breastfeed your baby—as health is the key to a brighter future!
