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 How is everyone doing with breastfeeding?

Post by kay on Wed Jun 25, 2008 3:16 pm

Im nosy lol!

Was just wondering where we are all at with our breastfeeding journey...

We are 4 months in, still feeding on demand, and no major problems at the mo. Im not starting solids yet, and hope to try BLW in a few weeks time. Oh, and I have no intentions of stopping BF until MrC says so Laughing

On the 28th Jue it is my 4 month milestone. We are doing great, Cally is a fab feeder and has nearly doubled her birth weight!! I am trying to get to 6 months and then start BLW (did this with Sere and its so much easier).I am really enjoying the feeding this time round, although still get uncomfy when feeding in public, though it doesn't stop me.

We've been :boob: for 6 1/2 month now and i still feed on demand. Originally i thought i would :boob: for 6 month. But i now have no intention of stopping until bethany wants to (although hopefully she wont still want it when she's 18! lol). Not had any major problems, mainly due to the help and advice of every one on here! We started BLW a couple of weeks ago and were just slowing introducing different tastes to her. She loves brocolli! :aww:

I'm still bfing on demand, other than lil miss being a pain in the bottom, and messing around, being distractable on the boob I'm loving every minute... but lil miss does have solids once or twice a day depending if she is having a sicky day or seems overly hungry, under guidence from the paediatrician... I booby feed her first then she has some food then more booby...Most people make me feel bad about it Sad but I wouldn't have done it if it wasn't for the fact I was desperate to do anything for her reflux and that was the only thing the doc would do to help...which btw isn't any better really so we are going back to the doctors next week to shout at them... :help: feels like such a waste of boob milk... Sad

Jack is 18 months now and is down to 3 feeds, morning, evening and bed time except at the weekend when we feed on demand.

Had a few problems starting off but everything has been brilliant for a while. Apart from the biting stage at 8 months and a massive dip in my milk supply from full time expressing when I went back to med school.

I'm going to let him self wean when he is ready.
