Embrace Naptime!

Nap time is about the only opportunity for mommies to have personal time to get things done whether it’s taking your first shower in two days or grabbing whatever you can find in the pantry to eat. What about when you need to keep baby awake to feed? Here are some helpful hints to help keep baby stirring while you’re feeding, whether it be breastfeeding or by bottle:

  • Talk or sing to baby.
  • If breastfeeding, try switching breasts when baby starts to doze off. Surprisingly, you may have to do this every 30 to 60 seconds in the beginning.
  • Rub baby’s head and feet with a damp cloth.
  • Try trickling a little bit of milk into the corner of baby’s mouth.
  • Change baby’s diaper in the middle of the feeding.

Now that you know how to keep baby awake to feed, here’s a helpful tip to get mom some extra sleep. First, let Aeroflow Breastpumps help you get a free double electric breast pump through insurance!

Build Up a Milk Supply

Having a breast pump means you can store milk so daddy or other loved ones can help with feedings. That’s right! Imagine this…it’s 4:00 a.m., you’ve been up most of the night feeding and keeping a close watch over your 2 week old, and you finally fall asleep. Baby wakes up to feed, and because you’ve been able to store your breast milk in the fridge thanks to your free breast pump, it’s daddy’s turn to wake up and feed. Sounds nice, right?

Well, whether you choose to exclusively pump or just need a breast pump to help store extra milk, Aeroflow Breastpumps can help you get your pump shipped right to your front door at no cost to you and your family. They carry all major breast pump brands including Medela, Spectra, Ameda, Hygeia, Lansinoh, and Nuk.
