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 Scary!!

I've just started reading Jack Newman's book and read a scary fact:

'A recent study of several brands of formulas found that some cans contained more than 4 times the amount of vitamin D listed on the label - and vitamin D in excess is toxic'

affraid what a scary thought!

There is much more stuff in formula you don't know about and don't want to know, trust me!

I was ignorant to the contents of formulas until I found this site. The facts are scary.
