Night time feeding – Liz Birchwood breast Start
The next battle was me trying to top-up feed him last thing at night when I went to bed. I had read that the baby should be gently roused till he was fully awake and then should be fed with no talking or eye contact. After a couple of nights of this I just felt plain cruel and decided to chance my luck at just lifting him out of the crib and seeing what happened when I tried to feed him - I was amazed to notice that within seconds of being lifted he was still sound asleep and 'pecking' towards my breasts regardless of the fact my clothing was in the way. Simply allowing him access let him feed quite contentedly without waking and this was a lovely experience for us both.
