Often mom’s are surprised by the intense need their baby has for them that first year of life.

This need to be close to mom is a very normal, natural behavior and one that is healthy for both the baby and mom.

Here are some helpful tips from La Leche League Great Britain on nursing during the holidays. It can be stressful but remember your baby needs you and it is okay to be selective with your Christmas to-do list this year!

When my first son was born, he wanted to be held ALL THE TIME to sleep. For naps and throughout the night.

If this sounds like your baby, know you are not alone! For helpful tips on co-sleeping safely, see La Leche League’s Safe Sleep Seven.
