Will breastfeeding drain me of all of my energy?
Parenting can be tiring no matter what, however, when you are breastfeeding your baby, you are able to rest and sometimes sleep while reclined or lying down with your baby, providing a much-earned rest time. Breastfeeding hormones also help you to feel more relaxed. Have healthy snacks and interesting books on hand so that you can read and snack while baby is feeding and sleeping.
