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

Hi I am Nicky and I have been breastfeeding Ellie for nearly 13months. We are down to 1 or 2 feeds in 24hrs. Just before bed and during the night if she wakes with teething pains. It is nice to find some support about carrying on breastfeeding past the year mark as I am getting a lot of negative comments about it from my family.

I will try and help others if I can and I am after some support about encourage Ellie to drop the last feeds but in her own time (if that makes any sense).

Just trying to test my signature. It didn't appear on the last message, so I have played with the settings.

hi there welcome to this great site. ive recently stopped bf my toddler was about 2, we did it gradually, it was kind of a combination of her letting go and me encouraging without enforcing. i gradually reduced the amount of time she spent on there. i also used a variety of cuddly toys that i tried to push inbetween her and boob! didnt always work! i can answer any questions (if i can!) just ask xx oh and i totally understand bout the negative comments i learned to just switch off!
