How Your Breastfeeding Life Changes from 1mo - 6mos

As your baby transitions from a sleepy few-week old to a more alert few-month old infant, you may notice that your baby's feeding patterns and behaviors change. You might be introducing a bottle and watching a family member enjoy taking part in the feeding routine. You may be going through growth spurts at 6 weeks and 3 months that throw you for a loop. You might also notice that your baby has inconsistent sleeping patterns and may sleep 6 hours/night one week and then go back to every two hours the next.

The following article, written by one of my favorite lactation consultants, Denise Altman, describes some common patterns you may notice in your 1mo - 6mo old baby. I love this article because it really helped normalize my son's behaviors at this age.

Enjoy!
