Beware the Christmas ‘booby’ trap! 😜
Over Christmas it’s easy to miss baby’s feeding cues because they might be being passed around the family, or people want to give you two free hands for a while. It’s also easy to unintentionally end feeds early because you may have worn something that isn’t quite as easy to feed in so you hurry it along a bit.
Both of these can mean you spend your evenings/nights feeding a hungry baby who needs to catch up rather than sleeping! Try and keep track of your normal breastfeeding rhythm so you and baby don’t loose sleep!
*I made both of these mistakes with all of my babies 🙂 apparently mothering and breastfeeding three babies doesn’t guarantee you remember the advice!*
