    Hi Monique,

    I’m doing well, and so is the family—thanks for asking!

    It sounds like your current routine is working well, especially since your little one isn’t falling asleep during feeding and is awake when you place her in the crib. Therefore, I don’t see a need to move the breastfeeding earlier in the routine.

    The main reason to consider adjusting the timing of the breastfeeding to before the bath would be if she were falling asleep while feeding. That could lead to her associating feeding with falling asleep, which might make her dependent on feeding to drift off. Since that isn’t happening with your little one, there’s no need to change your current bedtime routine.

    I hope this helps!
