* 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

default Kids say the funniest things

seen this on net too.

Big Brother an Advocate!

While I was pregnant with my daughter, Skye, I was very open about pregnancy and childbirth with my son David. At just over 6 years old, David was a VERY curious and inquisitive fellow. I tried to give him honest, factual information without 'overloading' him on the clinical details of the baby's development and of what to expect following the birth.

One of the topics that we discussed was how mommy would feed the baby. He seemed to grasp the concept of breastfeeding fairly well, and I answered many questions about how my body would make milk, and how the milk would get out, etc. Once Skye was born, he watched her nurse intently. And often as soon as she would so much as whimper, he would ask if it was time for her to eat.

I never realized just how wonderfully he had grasped the concept of breastfeeding until one day when we had been grocery shopping. While we were in the check out line, Skye became a bit fussy. I was trying to wait until we got home to feed her, or at least until we were in our car. A well meaning little old lady said to David, "Where is her pacifier or her bottle? Maybe she's hungry." I beamed with pride and struggled not to laugh at the woman's shocked expression as David responded ... "She doesn't like those things ... She probably wants to nurse!"
