Breastfeeding Misconception - LONG naps after EACH feeding
Breastfeeding management misconceptions often keep new moms from starting or continuing to breastfeed. One misconception is that “baby should sleep for several hours after each feeding”. This misconception can be dangerous. Babies who are calorie deprived sleep for long periods of time after each feeding and may not have the energy to do much of anything else. Long, repeated naps after each feeding should not be confused with “milk comas” or baby falling asleep at the breast.
