Six Weeks Breastfeeding Tips:

  • Another growth spurt! Baby will nurse more frequently for several days in a row
  • Crying peaks at this phase of baby’s life, be patient
  • You may begin to see social smiling from baby
  • Baby will continue to nurse every 1½ to 3 hours, with one long 3-5 hour interval of sleep (hopefully at night)
  • Attend a La Leche League Meeting or
  • Recommended reading: “The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding” by La Leche League International
  • If you have to leave baby when you return to work in a few weeks, begin storing your milk.  Call for an appointment for guidance on preparing to return to work.
