So, all of my plans for being a good partner have been thrown out the window.
In a previous post, I mentioned that I didn't know why more men didn't help feed the baby dispite the fact that Mom was breastfeeding. My thoughts were, just pump some into the bottle, Dad feeds through the night every other night and Mom can sleep making the amount of lost sleep equal between the parents.
My cousin, Laura, then pointed out to me that, even if she's not feeding the baby, she will still need to pump.
Okay...so she rolls out of be for 30 minutes every night to pump so she is more comfortable.
I knew infants fed every 1 and a half to 3 hours. What I didn't realize until just last night, during Breastfeeding 101, was that Mom's body is on the same clock as baby's. Mom will also need to pump every 1 and a half to 3 hours if she wants to keep her knockers in proper breastfeeding form.
That's just stupid. Remind me to have a conversation with whoever came up with this plan.
