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 Hello from Hertfordshire

Post by jimmer73 on Tue Aug 28, 2007 3:32 pm

Hi I'm Jaime and I have been bf for nearly 10months. We had a rocky start, my milk didn't come in so I had to lactate. My son was born 8lbs 12oz and by Day 7 he was 7lbs. That was when the midwives realised something was not quite right.

The lactating process was long, arduous, soul destroying but so, so, worthwhile. Thankfully after a couple of weeks of lactating my milk came in and we have had no problems since. (except for a few plugged ducts which DS is quite efficient at unplugging. :boob: )

I look forward to getting to know all you ladies and sharing my experiences and learning from you all.

Hi Jaime!!

Its really great to see you here.. somehow, I didn't know about your rocky start.. or forgot.. bad mommy brain... but I am so glad you made it through, and are going strong.. your strength and perseverence (sorry sp) are such an inspiration!

No I'm not an inspiration, just downright stubborn.

The women who relactate long term are those that are truly inspirational.
I just did what I needed to do to fulfill my Mummy instincts.
