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 Back to basics question...

Post by gem1981 on Thu Jun 12, 2008 2:14 pm

When I was at the clinic yesterday one of the hv's was talking to a lady :boob: and said she should keep baby on the same breast for at least 20 mins and not swop to the other boob. I tend to keep Daisy on the same boob until it feels empty and then offer the other. It normally feels empty in less than 20 mins though, unless it isnt empty and I just think it is? Whats the general rule on swopping boobs?
