4 August 2010 No Comment

Early period of breastfeeding is essential. Mothers and children alike should exercise to become “partners” in a compact lactation. In the first weeks, your baby will wake up several times asking to be fed. From the hospital after giving birth, sleep soon becomes something grand for the mother.

Enough sleep is really important for mother, so that my mother and when she woke up ready to breastfeed, you should sleep when the baby is asleep, wake up and when he woke Breastfeed. But do not forget, between the times of baby slept, stole a little time to eat and drink nutritious milk so that the quality of your breast milk is maintained.

Observe baby’s sleep pattern! Why? Because every baby is has unique pattern. There are babies who can sleep all day, day and night. There are also babies often wake up at night and must be fed. By recognizing the pattern of sleep, the mother can manage time, and find the right timing to pay “debts” sleeping, eating and drinking or just looking for some fresh air and rest.

Ask someone else to take care of the little things that need to be done during the mother has rest. Father need to also be involved! For example, by asking his help to hold when the baby woke up at midnight. The father is usually skill at changing diapers and gives the baby milk also.
