A few weeks ago I shared our bedtime bottle trick and got a lot of questions about it so I figured I’d share it again here. We did the same thing with Piper and both of my girls have been great sleepers (most of the time) so maybe it works??? I’ll tell myself that anyway :)
We give Flora bottle of pumped milk before bed every night. I nurse her around 5:30 and then have been giving her some real food and then she gets a bottle before bed. We do this so we know exactly how much milk she’s getting since my supply tends to dip at the end of the day. It also allows anyone to put her to bed (not just me, nursing her) which is a bonus. Because we do this, I pump every night around 9:30pm before I get into bed. It’s definitely annoying — especially when I’ve been out or am traveling but it’s totally worth it !!
