Today’s sleep tip is brought to you by Parent Hacks, a useful site with all kinds of parent tips.
When you are breastfeeding, it’s easy to forget which breast is next in the middle of the night. Most of us know about the safety pin idea, but that could hurt in the middle of the night. Here are some other things you can do to remind yourself which breast is next:
- Lie baby down facing the direction she last nursed, so next feeding you can switch sides.
- Put a hair band around the wrist of the side you last nursed.
- If you wear a ring besides a wedding band, switch the ring to the side you last nursed.
I usually just feel which side is fuller, but sometimes that is hard to tell. 😉
