Both of the above are correct. When DS2 was born, he was too small to latch. Just having to go downstairs and get a bottle woke me more than nursing him did. One of the hormones released during breastfeeding relaxes both mom and baby so both get back to sleep easier.

Like others have said, it's for the convenience factor. Of course, BF babies need to eat a lot more often so even though you can just flop out a boob, you will still be disturbed many more times. Also, with my little ones I changed them when they woke up for feedings and you really can't do that in your sleep so unless those BF moms aren't changing their babies at all at night they are getting up too.
