Why does breastfeeding change as babies grow?
Breastfeeding changes with the age of the baby. That’s because babies get stronger and more efficient at feeding. Their personalities develop and they start interacting more with their mother. Breastfeeding principles, however, stay the same: breastfeed when the baby acts hungry and offer both breasts at each feeding. Mothers don’t need to worry if their baby’s patterns are a little different from typical ones as every mother and baby pair is unique. Mothers and babies who have a very different feeding pattern should be seen by their health-care providers.
