Re: New and Confused
Since your baby is eating so much at daycare, that could explain her shortened night feedings. If you can stand to wake her up, definitely wake her. Maybe if she nurses more during the night, she'll need less milk from the bottle during the day.
It's totally normal to feel more full at night- levels of prolactin (the milk making hormone) tend to peak overnight, and that means many moms feel more full in the small hours of the night and morning. Many people think that this biological tendency is an indication that babies are actually designed to take in more calories at night than during the day, and suggest that co-sleeping and night-feeding should be the norm, rather than something that is frowned on.
It sounds like you're doing wonderfully well!
