Q:

Why do I feel sleepy while breastfeeding baby.... 😑😕



Sheeba Vijesh

when baby feeds, a hormone called oxytocin is released. this hormone not only helps in milk let-down, but also is a relaxant. thats why bf causes sleepiness. it happens to all. thats why it is advised not to feed while lying down...

It happens...hormones and its tiring. Just ensure you get plenty of sleep when baby is sleeping
