My daughter is 6 weeks old. For most feedings, I undress her down to the diaper to feed her. This used to be necessary to keep her awake, plus I just liked the bonding, but lately she has been staying more awake during feedings. Sometimes I just keep her dressed, especially if I'm exhausted or she is wanting to eat NOW. Is this a bad thing to do?
Does everyone undress their babes for nighttime feedings? I've been using kimono style onesies or zippered outfits to dress and undress her easily and without too much fuss, but I'm just wondering if everyone does skin to skin at nighttime or am I making things unnecessarily complicated?
I want to do whatever is best and if there is benefits to continuing the skin to skin feedings, I will not sacrifice them for ease.
On a random side note, I try to do skin to skin during the day as well, but our baby heats up and sweats so much with skin to skin contact... she's a little heat bucket. I wonder if she's not more uncomfortable than she would be cuddling in a onesie.
Thanks so much for your help!!
