How do breastfeeding working mothers sleep at night is a big question for me ⁉️( Picture: Breastfeeding Tsipi under Prune Nourry’s sculpture Milk Pool. )

My breastfeeding journey VS French Culture

Breastfeeding journey 🤱✨
Nina
Difficulties for breastfeeding mothers to go back to work. I believe we should be supported way more , and allowed more maternity leave when you need to breastfeed your child. I have been lucky to have a very flexible work that allows a smooth even though EXHAUSTING experience. But i can’t even start to imagine the life of women who breastfeed and need to be at work full time ...

Thanks @hannah! And congrats on breastfeeding for now 10 months! I want to do it at least until 2 years old, a challenge but something i am looking forward as well !

A bit about the support I got during Covid. And here’s a poem I wrote about breastfeeding!

I do think breastfeeding mothers should be supported to make the choice they want to make

Sending you strength @ninastl ! I relate to what you are experiencing there is def a change of night schedule around 7/8months... and now we are also going through a big new change around 12 months... 😅

Is Zion teething maybe? 🧐

Yes teething could be a factor?

Latching, phasing out feeds, a year on..
Gini
Not really sure when I will completely stop
Hannah Ray
Hey @NinaStl sounds like a really tough sleep patch... hopefully the “this too shall pass” slogan can be a good reminder it might be bad one day then suddenly ok the next
Hannah Ray
On the question of how you get your baby to sleep without breastfeeding ? 🤔 @NinaStl
Hannah Ray
And hey hey @gini so lovely to hear your breastfeeding journey. Wondering how you phased out the day feeds? 🤔
Nina
Thank you SO MUCH! We will now trying a new tactic to try and see if it helps at night! 🙏🏽✨
Nina
Letting him sleep in his crib and not in bed anymore and see if that helps!
Nina
Nice to hear from you @gini 🙌🏾🙏🏽
Gini
Hi @hannah, I started increasing the time between feeds out more. And also can try gradually making a feed shorter and shorter before dropping it.
Gini
@hannah, I also introduced dairy milk into her meals when I dropped day feed
Gini
@hannah, just adding to topic of when to stop breastfeeding, still figuring that out!
Gini
Hi @NinaStl, good luck with the new sleeping / feeding plan! I agree that it is best for long term, and makes for good sleeping habits. Hope Zion settles into it well.
Hannah Ray
Thank you @gini 🙏
Hannah Ray
How’s it going @NinaStl and question for everyone about bedtime routines?
Nina

Nina
Would also love to hear about your bedtime and nap routines mummies!!

This woman never had milk again after this aggression. I am so chocked and sad to hear about this situation, that for sure many women are living around the globe!
