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

Yep, yet another growth spurt. Just when you think you pretty much know when they are supposed to have one they suprise you with another one.

Jack's nearly 19 months and currently going through a growth spurt, his appetite has increased massively and he is wanting to nurse a lot more than usual.

Hope it passes quickly for you.
