    Default Night Milk

    I think that I may have a silly question but I really don't know. I have wayyy more milk at night than I do during the day. My supply and letdown is so strong at night my LO chokes sometimes. I feel like she gets her best feedings at night. Is this a known fact? We co-sleep is this why?

    Yes your best milk does come in at night as prolactin levels are highest between 1 - 5 am. Makes sense that babies want to nurse then...

    I've always noticed that they are fullest at night and my LO eats the best as well at night. I think its because of what the PP has said and that I'm sleeping as well. I cosleep as well but I don't think that has too much to do with it.
