Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

The '20 second toe curl' !!!

default The '20 second toe curl' !!!

Post by kay on Sat Feb 23, 2008 8:18 pm

Im really happy with everything at the moment - but i have one little question!
The initial latch on that has you gritting your teeth for 10 - 20 seconds - Does it ever go, or is it something I will get every time i BF?
It doesnt seem quite as toe curling now, although i am still gritting my teeth. Once it has gone in that few seconds, there is no pain at all - it all feels quite pleasant now and not at all uncomfy (unless he decides to move his head or burp on the breast or splutter!)

:p:

I had this quite strongly for about 2-3 weeks and then it went completely.

Are they still bit sore from first days?
there shouldn't be any pain, but often is because soreness from first days.Also- it could suggest latching probs. My advice: unlatch straight away and latch on again, till you are pain free. I know its hard with hungry baby but its worth.

I had this for about 2 weeks, but when my nipples become used to it, it went away.

Did the HV check your latch?

The MW did and said it is fine - i am getting much better at latching him now as well.
the right nip seems to hurt more than the left for the initial latch, i guess i am better at it on one side than the other!
