In this newest webisode "3am Feeding" Evenflo takes a humorous look at the challenges associated with late night feeding and the ‘your turn’ routine that often occurs between spouses. This only worked for me with baby #1. My husband is a wonderful Father but I wouldn't say we took "turns" at night. And when we did this video hits the nail on the head as to what it was really like.
Would you believe that when Evenflo asked a panel of moms about who was responsible for feedings throughout the night: a whopping 74% of moms reported the responsibility lay with them, while only 5% reported having a set schedule with their spouse to share the responsibility. With that 27% of moms are so tired that they’re actually concerned they might fall asleep during the feeding itself. Thirty-five percent of women surveyed admitted to waiting only about 10 minutes after feeding (vs. the recommended 20) to lay their babies back down if they hadn’t burped, and an additional 23% say they were too tired and waited only a few minutes.
I admit I DID fall asleep a few times only to awake to find I was feeding my babies nose!
Who did the majority of night time feedings in your home? And did it make a difference if it was your first child or not?
