My question is this: did you breastfeed or pumped milk to bottle feed? I breastfed my first child at any time of the day and suffered from terrible sleep deprivation. When I gave birth to my second child, the question arose about feeding, I immediately said that I would express milk. Still, when mom gets enough sleep, she has more energy to take care of the child. At night, the baby was helped by her husband, we shared this responsibility. It's good that now there are a lot of useful breast pumps that help young mothers get an extra hour of sleep while the baby is bottle-fed by relatives or a nanny.
