'Breastfeeding Myths Debunked' - Never wake a sleeping baby
Today's myth we are debunking is never wake a sleeping baby.
While this myth is partially true-it's not entirely true. Newborns often do not wake themselves when hungry and sometimes they eat for a few seconds and fall right to sleep. Newborn babies should eat at least 8 times a day and sometimes, you need to wake them to feed them.
There are various reasons for newborns not to wake-pain drugs given to moms during labor/delivery, jaundice, trauma, pacifiers, etc.
Did your nursling need woken up after birth to eat? Do you know of any other reasons why babies should be woken to eat?
