    Default Alert Bbby?

    I was wondering...is this a trait of BF babies? Do you all get comments about how alert your baby is? I always get these sorts of comments about both of my newborns. When my DD was born in the hospital I took her to get her first picture taken there and the woman who had been doing baby pics for many years said that she can ALWAYS get a BF'd baby to open their eyes for the pics

    It's possible that there is a correlation. Then again, some babies are just more alert than others.

    Katie, people were always remarking on how DD was 'bien reveillée' (wide awake). An interesting point. Well, ff babies usually take longer naps with hard-to-digest formula, right?

    My DS is 4 mo and we get that same thing all the time. (he also has HUGE eyes so that could be part of it)

    People tell me the same thing so maybe there is something to it.

    My sister told me that about DD, but she BF my neice. Then again, my neice was born a month early, so that might be why?

    I get that a lot as well. I thought maybe it was because I wear DS and his "admirers" just aren't used to seeing a baby, and all a baby's inquisitive looks and expressions, at eye level.

    Joe was a wide awake, alert baby (he never slept!) but my sister's baby slept all the time, from birth onwards. Both breastfed. So I'm not sure.

    Interesting...I don't get to see too many babys that often to make any kind of comparison. Maybe it's just one of those things people say too like how they always say how cute your baby is...of course they are!
