do you think babies who are breastfed sleep better then babies who get breast milk from a bottle?

I was pumping into a bottle until recently and now I'm full on breast feeding him, but the last several days he has been taking 2 hour naps compared to his 30 to 40 minute naps and I was wondering if it had to do with me breast feeding him.

It might be. Drinking directly from the breast he's able to get more of the fatty hind milk then with it pumped. Or he could have just gotten through some developmental/physical milestones and now is sleeping better for it.

It's possible, I know when we nurse, our bodies release a chemical (or hormone) that causes both mom and baby to feel sleepy. I'm not sure, but maybe the baby doesn't get that from pumped breastmilk.
