I've now got a 4 week old baby who I breastfeed...I need to look at something on my phone to keep me awake in the wee hours but I'm not on social and the news is so miserable. What do other people do to stay awake whilst breastfeeding at night? Breastfeeding now and little cherub is staring wide eyed back at me...

I haven't breastfed for 10 years so can't really remember but I think often I would doze off a bit but my mum powers would wake me when they unlatched. They did sleep co sleep with me so I think most of it was done in half sleep.

Awake with my four year old and loving these suggestions - just downloaded Solitaire! She's up 6/7 times a night (is this normal?!) so like others I really struggle not to drop off. At the moment both partner and I have vibrating alarms to check I'm not asleep which helps a bit.
