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

Growth spurt??

default Growth spurt??

Post by gem1981 on Fri Jun 27, 2008 8:29 pm

Daisy is 11 weeks old on Tuesday. For the past 2 or 3 days she seems to finish her feed really quickly, I mean, she'll have one boob and finish it within a few minutes and then go to the other and she seems to finish that one really quick too. Could this be down to a growth spurt? She isn't feeding more often, just finishing the boob really quickly. I just hope I can produce more milk quick enough for her.

She's about due one hun - and they are not all to the correct date!
It does sound like it though - just kep putting her on - you will keep producing and produce more to meet her needs :aww:

(I found the 16 week one most difficult so far Rolling Eyes )

Does sound like a spurt- usually around 12 weeks but every baby is different.

I too found the 16 weeks one really difficult, and the 9 month one was bad as well.

Just keep feeding on demand and your supply will increase.

Isn't mother nature brilliant lol
