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 Some info from my chat with Milk donor lady!

Post by kay on Fri Jun 13, 2008 9:23 pm

I learned a few things today i thought i would share with you.

It cost 100 per litre of donated breastmilk - this covers collection, testing and storage Shocked
Funding for Human milk banks is through charity - without financial and milk donation it wouldnt happen.

You can donate breastmilk until your child is 1 year old (in this area anyway!) I had previously thought it was until baby was 6 months - but apparantly you have to start before baby is 6 months old.

The NHS are campaigning to stop free formula being given in hospitals. If mothers plan to FF, they may have to take own formula in (she is keeping me updated on this one!) and using the saved funds to provide more breastfeeding support. cheers

Shocking but worth while, better than the alternative of course as we all know.
The lady at hudderfield milk bank is really friendly looking forward to meeting her when i take first lot of milk.
