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 Groth spurt or teeth.

Kaydi, is feeding alot. I think it may be the 4 month growth spurt but not too sure. It could be teeth as she has the bottom 2 coming through. One has broken through the gum.
The reason i think its her teeth is because she seems to be taking more milk than she wants. This is making her sick, she isn't usually sick.

(I shouldn't laugh.......... but i did ..............cruel mother i am. Kaydi was sick when i was showing my friends out. I cleaned her face and the floor. 10 mins later Lana came to sit on couch to watch pepper pig, when i noticed she had sick all over the back of her head in her hair. Even Lana laughed when i told her , bless.)

Just thinking and typing really.

And the 16 week growth spurt was a VERY big one for us! we had to sit tight for a few days and resign myself to the fact it was :boob: :boob: :boob:

If she is teething as well, it may be a little tough on you both, but you will get through, and it doesnt last forever :aww:
