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 showing signs of weaning

Post by piesmummy2006 on Wed Sep 10, 2008 11:32 pm

i think she may be wanting to stop! she only has morning and bed now but she is wanting less and less she never even wanted any when she had calmed down after a tantrum i was only feeding till two in my mind because of uni ( need loads of injections oct but was gonna look into it as i could still feed last time) so anyaway was leaving it as long as poss in worst case but she is doing even better and self weaning my road has not been easy but fully enjoyable i saw this on utube and is soooooooooo how i feel

Nursing has enritched my life
in more ways than i ever felf possible.
It continues to bring new joys and
precious fleeting moments spent
holding and nourishing my child

i am so proud of my self for reaching this far i never thought it possible i carnt remember if i have said before but i have only had one breast to feed niamh from about three or so months old (due to some medical reasons and my stupidity lol) but was determined to do the best for her and if the end i managed for just over two yrs!, even if i am reaching the finish line with one boobie a cup n a bit size bigger Laughing, and all the memories of all the looks off people and family on both sides butting in!!! Just looking down at her lil face and the noises she makes are worth while!
I truley carnt wait to do it all again.

Anyway just wanted to share with you how proud i am of my self

(oh also can i stay if the end is near? i will miss you all to much and who else can i talk to at half midnight! lol)
