Night Feeds


 

Night feeds have many advantages:

- Your milk supply will be established sooner

- The chance of engorgement is reduced and this therefore helps prevent nipple damage

- Promotes quality sleep for mother, due to the hormones released whilst breastfeeding

- Your breasts will feel more comfortable and you will therefore sleep better

- As adequate milk supply will be maintained for your baby

You may find it easier to adapt to night feeds if you are able to rest during the day whenever possible.
