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

Hello,

I'm Kathryn, a volunteer with Breast Buddies, a community group which aims to promote breastfeeding in Leeds. We have a website at www.breastbuddies.org

Basically we offer free training to local mothers with breastfeeding experience to then provide encouragement and support to other local mothers. We only started in October 2007 and have trained 11 women so far.

We're also going to be holding a poster exhibition in the Light shopping centre during Breastfeeding Awareness Week. The posters include images of local mothers breastfeeding at various landmarks in Leeds.

If anyone would like more information about Breast Buddies in Leeds please email me at director@breastbuddies.org

Kind regards,
Kathryn

Hi :wave:

Thank you for introducing yourself to the forum.

Its good to see there are groups people can attend, I think it invaluable for women to have support.

Good luck with the exhibition!

Hi Kathryn, What a great idea !!!

I was speaking to my health visitor about the lack of BF information whilst I was pregnant only a few months ago. The only information I saw all the time I was pregnant was few leaflets in the antenatal clinic.

It would be great to see trained BF supporters visiting mums to be and teaching them the benefits of BF. Or as you have done and started classes on the subject.

I live in the North East and unfortunatly we have the lowest amount of BF mothers in the country and this is so sad.

I have really enjoyed the benefits of BF and has helped me to bond with my son. I think all mums to be should be aware of their choices and have the support they need in the early days.
