Why is breastfeeding important at night?
Babies do not sleep as deeply as adults. In the first six months of a baby's sleep, they have light sleep. This kind of light sleep helps stimulate the baby's brain development. Because breast milk is digested faster and more completely, breast-fed babies are more likely to wake up at night.
Mother breastfeeding at night will not only help children get more milk, but also help mothers produce more milk, because prolactin has a more vigorous secretion at night than during the day. Frequent awakening of a baby at night is a dual need for nutrition and emotion. Eating more breast milk and getting more comfort will help the baby's healthy growth.
