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

topic 6 Me again sorry!

Post by kay on Mon Mar 03, 2008 7:38 pm

He is full of snot at the moment - worse at night. He seems to be ok when he is on the breast, although he is unlatching himself a bit more. But he is quite sicky immediately after getting his wind up - its like thick gloopy milk, not loads, just enough to have to get a tissue or wet wipe to if you know what i mean.
Do you think it could be because of his cold? I didnt expect him to be sicky really with being BF.
I checked my milk with him unlatching himself often, and there is plenty coming out, and it is squirting (fired over his head across the lounge floor!), so not sure if my flow is maybe a bit fast??? I havent expressed at all yet with a pump as i dont want to interfere with my supply until we are established.

Mine was the same with the pressure. If she unlatched too soon it just squirted everywhere the pressure was incredible!!!

You can get a saline thing to squirt up there noses which helps clear them which you can use just before feeding. It is I believe the only thing you can use at that age.

willow was exactly the same she was very snotty and sticky for the first month at least, my hv (the good one!) said they have alot to get rid of out of their system so its quite normal. willow was a sicky one too, the snotty bits made her posset like you desribed but sometimes she would even bring up full feeds! youre right not to start expressing yet too you need to get the flow established properly. it does take a while for both your bodies to get your own pattern sorted you sound like youre doing great keep going! x :aww:
