Something to watch out for:
Have you experienced a dip in #milksupply over the holidays? What helped you stay nursing? Share your tips for #holidayswithbaby! Or did you use the busy holidays as a time to wean your older child?
Some things that can help include:
- babywearing to keep baby close and your hands free
- bringing baby with you to parties rather than leaving them at home
- letting go of some duties. Not everything has to happen, and it doesn't have to be done by you!
- asking for help
- scheduling nursing breaks for yourself and baby
