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

default Hi everyone!!!!

Post by **Debbie** on Wed Jun 04, 2008 8:28 am

I just discovered this forum yesterday, and I thought I'd make myself known.

Well obviously my name is Debbie!! I'm 31 and have three children. Dan is 13, Shannon is 4 and Annabel is 16 months.

Unfortunately, I didn't manage to breastfeed Dan, probably due to being young, and a lack of support.

I was going to bottle feed Shannon, but she was born weighing 4lb 14oz, and as she wouldn't take a bottle the midwife was suggesting she be fed through a tube. Well I thought I'd try her on the breast, and she latched on, fed for 50 minutes and then laid her tiny head on my chest. Two and a half years later she weaned!!!

With Annabel I knew I'd breastfeed, and after a tricky few weeks in the beginning she mastered it. And we're still going strong!!

Thanks Katie!!

Shannon wasn't actually premature. She was born at 38 weeks, but she'd stopped growing as I had pre-eclampsia.
