I'm not giving any styling advice whatsoever, my advice comes from a postural point of view with the idea to prevent you from having back pain.
Firstly where are you going to feed your child?
If you choose to have a chair here's some things to think about.
- Make sure the chair has back support and by this I mean it's high, can accomodate you leaning back into it, and it has lumbar support. You can always add cushions in the small of the back (curve) to add extra support.
- If your feet don't touch the ground add a stool or poof to put your feet on. This makes it easier for your pelvis to be in a neutral position and support your back.
- Add pillows, cushions and more pillows or cushions. Have enough cushions to support the baby's weight so all your arms are doing is guiding them to the breast or bottle etc. Once your baby is feeding look up, this will help reduce the risk of neck pain.
- Make sure it has arm rests so you can put the pillows there accordingly to help support the babies weight.
- Ensure you have a table near by to rest a glass of water on and anything else you might want while you're feeding as you know these things can take time.
If you chose not to go with a chair, the same things regarding your posture still apply - choose your feeding spot based on back support, pillows and cushions and sit up tall when feeding.
Secondly where are you going to change your babies endless nappies??? when looking for a change table keep in mind you want the table to be about waist height, so you can fold from your hips when changing them. Ideally an adjustable one would be the best so you and your partner can look after you backs. Also make sure you are as close to the table as possible and use your pelvic floor and deep tummy muscles for added support.
