1. Surf on the Internet: With one free hand, you can swipe your way through the Internet, read some news and catch up on some of the latest fashion trends.

3. Read a Book: Being a mom can be so demanding, it feels like you have little to no time for yourself but thank God for multitasking, you can indulge in your little pleasures like reading a book, your Bible or simply catching up on your devotional as you breastfeed.

4. Have a Pedicure: Having a me time and attending to your baby? what a great combo!!! As your baby feeds off you, you can have your nails being attended to.

5. Spend Time with Your Other Children: If you have another child, then breastfeeding is a great time to spend some time with him. You can sit by him and watch his favorite program with him or share in any other thing he may be doing, like drawing or simply guiding him in his assignments.
