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 Random people telling you what to do................

Post by clairelana on Thu Jul 24, 2008 12:43 pm

Has anyone else had this?

I was in next today and one of the women who worked there said "oh she's hungry isn't she" I said "erm no she has just been breast fed and had a bottle of expressed breast milk, she's tired" Then she went on to say "You should give her a bottle of water to calm her" I was getting annoyed at this point and said "I breast feed her, she doesn't need water" and walked off before i told her what i was thinking. AAAAAGGGGHHHH How annoying.

(sorry moaning again........lol. I don't always moan....ha ha)

grrrr Evil or Very Mad

I hate it when everyone thinks they have the right to comment on your baby.
In the evening when Corey cluster feeds, if we are out, or there are people here - 'oh he cant possibly want feeding again' or ' he's just had a feed, he is tired'.

My baby, i know what he wants and needs! Bugger off!

you come and rant anytime hun :aww: we all know how you feel!

lol! i get that daily!
Corey is 5 months and 19lb 6oz of pure breastmilk (apart from the odd lick of a nicked apple!)
People just cant accept he such a size on just booby milk ( or it leads to the comments on the size of my boobs Rolling Eyes )

Other people always think they know what is right for your baby. I would ask them if they would like to pop in and do the night time feeds and house work if they are so concerned !!

I no what you mean - i have had the 'she cant be hungry again can she' comments off in laws since baby was born! Mad .

When she was a month or so old bethany just wanted feeding and suckling constantly and especially when we went to his mums or grandmas. Everytime she was being held by them she would cry loads - it was to come back to me. So i'd put her staright to the breast and she'd suckle. in laws used to always say she's full of wind thats why she's cring.Erm, no its cos she wants mummy! My sister takes the p**s out of inlaws with a private injoke - whenever we went to her house and bethany started crying my sis would say the same in front of hubby - me and my sis would be secretly smirking. :haha:

Yes well... I think I can totally sympathise atm... :haha: I've had all sorts of random comments... but the stranger ones are far easier to handle than those from In laws and relatives.. They hurt more.. Neutral And then its the comments about my parenting choices that really upset me.. its kinda someone saying your a crap parent.

I no what you mean but i just try my hardest to ignore them (inlaws). Because the way i see it i'm doing what i believe is best for my baby - i'm :boob: to give her the best possible start in life(which none of them have even tried), i waited till she was 6 month old before introducing solids (inlaws especially were commenting from when she was 3 month that she should be on purees now), i did baby led weaning because i believe its best for their development of independant feeding (they hate blw - its so dangerous they say! Erm, no its not! I love sitting her in the same room as them when she's eating something lol) and we :cosleep2: which also inlaws hate! and i think its brilliant! (I used that icon but we've only one baby yet lol)

Anything to p**s them off i love haha!
