The actual pattern of sleeping and waking varies widely from baby to baby, just as it does in older children and adults. Many adults do not sleep through the night. There is no evidence to suggest that there is any difference between breastfed babies and those fed formula with regard to the age at which they sleep through the night.
There are all sorts of positions you can use to breastfeed your baby. Chest to chest and chin to breast is a quick way of describing good positioning. His whole body should be very close to yours, like you are ‘wearing’ him. If you have any concerns about attaching your baby, please contact the Breastfeeding Helpline on 1800 mum 2 mum (1800 686 268) to speak to a counsellor. | Australian Breastfeeding Association
If you plan to birth your baby in a hospital, then choosing a Baby Friendly accredited hospital means that you have a better chance of establishing breastfeeding successfully and going on to exclusively breastfeed your baby for a longer period of time.
