Breastfeeding moms are masters of multitasking. Most moms can admit to scrolling social media, cooking dinner, or reading a book while breastfeeding their baby. But have you ever thought about the benefits of "monotasking" as a breastfeeding mom? Although you have a million things to do, taking a few minutes during your day to focus on the moment at handthrough meditation is incredibly beneficial. The reasons you should meditate as a breastfeeding mom are powerful, and might convince you to take a few minutes to slow down everyday, whether it's during your actual breastfeeding sessions or not.
An article from The Huffington Post pointed out a few of the life-changing benefits of meditation. And although breastfeeding and meditation are rarely talked about together, meditation can only do amazing things for breastfeeding moms as well — from decreased stress, to increased self-awareness, to a more balanced milk supply.
The next time you're tempted to multitask in an effort to alleviate stress and cross things off your list, take a few moments to meditate and be in the moment instead. Your breastfeeding journey won't be the only area of your life to benefit.
