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

Hi ladies

I'm going to my local baby cafe group tomorrow!! I normally get scared going to things like that, but I'm really looking forward to it. I just want to get more confident at :boob: Since day 1 the midwife said I just needed more confidence. I know I must be doing something right because Daisy's gaining weight really well. I still have pain when feeding though, in my left boob. My right has always seemed better than the left. So hopefully if I'm doing something wrong they can help me with it.
I ended up buying a mei tai sling off ebay and went out in it today. Daisy slept for about an hour and a half in it. She woke up crying but I think she was hot and bothered. (Hubby hasnt noticed the sling yet - he was at work when we went out, so I might be in trouble after we were both trying to make one the other night! :ohdear: )

Hope everyone's having a nice wkend. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Haven't got a pic of me wearing it yet, but this is the mei tai:

Will get hubby to take a pic of us in it though. (I confessed - didn't get in trouble - He has even ordered my b'day pressie, I'm having one of those silver necklaces with baby's fingerprints in a heart, can't wait!!)
Will let you know how we get on at baby cafe!

Yes, it'll be nice to meet other breastfeeding moms. I have no friends who have breastfed and dispite hubby having 5 kids, Daisy is his only breastfed child so he has little knowledge too - although I think he's proud that Daisy is breastfed!
It'll be nice to be able to talk and learn about it. Not that I haven't learnt loads from this site!! I'm so glad I found it!

Went to the baby cafe today! I've always been a bit scared of groups, but I really enjoyed it. It said on the website there would be someone from LLL there and a health visitor, which there wasn't. But it was nice to talk to other breastfeeding moms. I'll definately be going again.
Its nice to know the support is there if you need it. With this website and that group I feel alot more supported. Thanks ladies. :group hug:
