Your newborn baby has a small tummy and needs to eat often. Keeping up with his feeding schedule is exhausting! How do you balance feeding and safe sleep?
You’re brilliant! You figured out how to make sure that your baby sleeps in their own space, how to make night feeding a little easier AND how to stay awake while feeding!
That’s not the safest choice. Breastfeeding is AWESOME for baby, but bed sharing puts her in danger of suffocation. Keep up the breastfeeding, but keep a pack ‘n play or crib near your bed. That way, you don’t have to get out of bed for feedings, but baby still has a safe space to sleep. If you have a partner, they can help get baby back to sleep in his crib when you’re both done.
Whoa, couches and recliners are dangerous spots for babies! If you fall asleep while you’re feeding on the couch, baby can easily slip between cushions and get wedged in. That can be deadly. Try to find ways to stay alert while feeding and put your baby back in his crib or pack ‘n play when you’re done.
