Noting the time when you express breast milk
I just wanted to share something which I learnt at my breastfeeding support group yesterday that I hope you will find helpful.
When you are expressing breast milk to feed to your baby on another day, it is a good idea to note the time that you expressed the breast milk. This is because breast milk is different at different times of the day. For example, breast milk which is expressed at night will contain more of the 'sleepy hormones' which help mums to fall back to sleep during the night feeds. You can then feed your baby the milk which was expressed at the equivalent time of day.
I found this really interesting - I am constantly impressed at how amazing, and adaptable, breast milk is.
