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 Met such a lovely hv

Post by Helen on Thu Jun 19, 2008 2:31 pm

I got bethany weighed at the baby clinic and saw a new hv. She was asking me loads of questions and was really friendly. So much better than the daft cow i saw the other week who told me i had to rush to get her to have 3 meals a day within a fortnight!

Anyway this new hv said to me that i was a walking advertisement for :boob: ! Laughing She also was really happy that i'd waiting till at least 6 month before weaning and gone straight onto finger foods! When i said i am not rushing her and that she is just having a few tastes of different foods most days she was really supportive and said what you girls have said that she's getting all the nutrients from my milk so solids arent necessary to rush into. She kept saying how good i'm doing! Could feel myself going :iconredface: lol.

And when i undressed baby and she saw the cloth nappy she kept saying i was a model mum! haha! Adam wont let me live it down now he keeps taking the mick out of me and saying 'look at you :boob: your such a model mum' ! :haha:

I have had great HV Andrew's was male which was a bit strange at first chatting about my breasts to him.

I have been so amazed at the knowledge and understanding of my HV....I think he reads this forum.

He has answers to everything and always has time to answer my questions.

Go Go my HV !!!!!! (you know who you are if you are reading)
