Still learning to nurse our nocturnal newborn

At 34 days old, our nocturnal baby has kept us awake at night for two weeks.

Only last night did I realise that when she releases her latch from her mummy’s boobs, it does not necessarily mean that she has had her fill.

This revelation led to a new strategy, i.e. to get darling to latch after unlatching. Even when she has briefly fallen asleep, we should wake her up to have her latch again.

There will come a point when she truly does not want anymore milk.
