Recently I have replied to a lot of questions on twitter from new mums about their breastfeeding routine. The question usually starts 'Is it normal for my baby to...' (Feed from both sides, one side, hourly, not at night, for long/short time etc)
So when Medela sent me this very handy graphic illustrating the vast range of 'normal' breastfeeding behaviour I had to share to reassure mums that each baby feeds differently. What is normal for one differs from baby to baby.
I am currently actively experiencing this as my 4mth baby's 'normal' is different to how her 3yr old sister fed. I'm writing up my breastfeeding stories and will be sharing my 'normal' next week.
