I just gave birth to my first child 5 weeks ago. Breastfeeding is going wonderfully. Not only has she taken to the breast but she will also take breast milk in the bottle. This is so helpful b/c it allows her father to feed her while I get in a nap or go to bed early. Even though her father can feed her in the middle of the night I still have to get up and pump every three hours. This is fine for now, but I return to work at the end of August and am not sure how well that's going to work for me then. Does anyone know of a way to get more than 3 consecutive hours of sleep while breastfeeding?
