A study in 1990 analyzed prolactin levels in 2️⃣0️⃣ lactating women 🤱🏼🍼
During this study they found that prolactin levels were the highest between 11 pm and 7 am, and lower the rest of the time.
This study also analyzed that since babies typically go longer stretches without nursing at night, the high prolactin levels may help maintain milk supply during this time 🌛
This again shows how amazing our bodies are 💪
Have you noticed that your milk supply is higher at night/in the early mornings?
