Perhaps that might be helpful for her to know.
How is that possible? How does the body produce higher fat content in the evening? I'm not doubting it, I just want to know how that works because my dd nurses for like 2 minutes when she wakes up at around 4:00 am and seems satisfied. Could it be related?
I would tell that mama to just put the baby in bed with her and just lift up her shirt and the baby latch on whenever he needs it. My dd went through a period in which she needed to be on me during the night in order to sleep. Once I put her in bed with me,, we all slept better because we didn't have to hear her crying throughout the night.
