Oftentimes, parents mention to be that their babies NEVER WANT TO BE PUT DOWN! Let me assure you that this is really, really, really normal, especially in the 4th trimester ;) These babies don't understand that they are their own person/entity, and being held and cuddled feels like "home" to them. I am a huge advocate of "babywearing," which is using a soft or structured carrier to tie or buckle baby on...leading to your hands being free and a content baby who may sleep longer between feeds. This is such a wonderful way for partners to help as well ;)

The postpartum period can be quite challenging for some, and I want everyone to know that there is specific support for things like anxiety and depression during this time. Even if you see a therapist regularly, and have since before baby came into your life, these resources can still be so helpful. Please don't be afraid to seek extra help!

Once baby is breastfeeding well, many families want to introduce a bottle. A great time is between 3 weeks to 6 weeks of age, and can be a small amount once a day or a few times a week, just for practice! Baby should sit upright and be paced fed, and ideally use a bottle nipple like pictured above to best mimic and go back and forth seamlessly between breast and bottle!
