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

My boobs keep leaking...

default My boobs keep leaking...

Post by Squiglet on Sat Aug 02, 2008 8:10 pm

My boobs keep leaking!!! I know its not an odd thing... but once my milk was established I never had any problems. Now they have started leaking loads again and I'm wearing pads again... I'm just curious as to why this is happening. Suspect Lil miss has started eating more solid foods, but she still has loads and loads of milk feeds during the day AND night... and tbh shes not eating a lot... 3 meals a day consisting of either

2 spoons of cereal, for brekkie
3 ice cubes of fruit/veg, for dinner (although she still seems hungry after this now)
slice of toast/apple/yogurt. for lunch...

She has 7 booby feeds a day in either a cup or a boob.. so a lot really... I am also expressing twice a day. My poor boobies get hammered... lol!

Did she feed more recenlty? she might have been dealing with growth spurt and boobs are keeping up with it. Probably will go back to "normal". I'm still leaking, lol!

Menu sounds great. Maya isn't STILL a big eater, we've celebrated today: she ate half a sausage and 3 slices of carrot, lol!

She was ill with a urine infection a while back and she lost interest in food...both solid and boob based...but last week she seemed to need to make up for it... so maybe thats it... Smile Thanks for the link too... lil miss is a huge eater...she'd stuff herself silly if I let her and I'm always worried she will favour solids over milk... Shocked

Olivia loves her food too, MORE pweese is a common occurance in our home from Livi Lou Razz

Yes that would be it, she made up for it, increasing your supply again and as shes settled to her old ways, your milk should come back down again and settle.

its common for mums to introduce solids slower and in lesser quantities for bf babies- because of high risk of early weaning. :aww:

I worry lil miss will still be having feeds at 20 as I'm also dummy as well as food...:pml: I don't think she would wean as such, just take less milk... She only has 2oz of milk in a cup with her meals and I thought that wasn't enough, but the link shows thats ok... she still has a further 7 feeds on top of those extra cup feeds. Although a couple of weeks ago she only fed 3 times a day and only one solid meal a day... she was really off colour.

I hope they do stop leaking soon though.... I leaked at work the other day cos I'd forgotten my breast pad.... It HAD to be the day I wore a white shirt too... Twisted Evil
