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

topic 9 Hello!

Post by Jessica on Wed Jun 04, 2008 12:52 pm

Hi everyone!

My name is Jessica. I'm the mommy of 2 boys here in the US...Mike who is almost 3, and Dean who is 9 months. I didn't BF Mike, due to being young and not knowing any better. I'm still BF'ing Dean. We've had many challenges along the way(to say the least!) but it made me become a lactation consultant. I love what I do, and I look foward to getting to know all of you!
