The Problem With Nursing Your Baby to Sleep

You know, when I had my first son, I had a lot of struggles with nursing. It was something that did not come easily to me. And one of the things that I started to do right from day one with my son, was nurse him to sleep. Right? I thought that that was the only way that this child would sleep, is if he were at the breast. And I know a lot of new moms feel exactly the same way. Right? The idea that he could fall asleep in any other way seemed foreign. He’s cranky, put him at the breast. He’s tired, put him at the breast. He’s irritable, let’s put him at the breast. And so the breast starts doing a whole lot of extra jobs, doesn’t it? And then it gets really tiring for both, mom and baby. Baby’s never really getting a full feed.

How to collect a travel bag for children? Roadtrip & Carry On Bag

Now, a few weeks ago, we let the kids pack their own carry-on bags, and that was really interesting. When they were able to pick for themselves, they definitely picked some interesting things that I wouldn’t necessarily pick for them. So now that it’s really time to go, I’m doing the packing. So I’ve picked out lots of fun items to keep them busy on the airplane, but to also keep them busy while we’re at our destination. We have several hours in the car as well, and, of course, there’s the flight back, so lots of activities to keep them busy the whole time, I’m hoping. Now for this trip, the girls are going to be sharing the pink suitcases and the boys are sharing the blue suitcases.

How often you should change sides when you’re nursing your young baby?

So to make a long story short, hindmilk is the thicker, creamier, and more nutritious milk that is at the back of your breast. It doesn’t come out initially.

So this is clearly a very, very important issue when it comes to nursing young babies. A lot of experts have studied it and there is a theory that many people believe in that what a nursing mom should do is fully empty her first breast before she goes on and feeds her baby from her second breast. And the theory is based on this notion of hindmilk. And the idea is that you want to make sure that your baby gets as full as possible with this
