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

topic3 It has come to an end

Post by ldnug on Sun Mar 16, 2008 8:13 am

I haven't wanted to post untll i was sure but my BF journey has come to an end.

Emily has been refusing night feeds for a few weeks now and i was becoming concerned about her fluid intake and then last weekend she decided that her brothers hot chocolate was much more appealing that mummys boobies. She now has a (very weak) hot chocolate before bed and in the morning and drinks it with great gusto.

If she wakes in the night i still BF her but this is rare.

I think she just got to the stage where she wants to be all grown up and be like us - if you know what i mean.

I am pleased she BF byond the first year.

I will miss BF as she is my last one but she is ready so i have to be too.
