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

I was for like 6 weeks... My mom claims I was a fussy nurser, and my grandma would give me formula in a bottle with big holes in a teat, so it was much nicer for me then "working" on the breast. My brother wasn't at all, mom awas on antibiotics after he was born (plasenta didn't bame out in one piece, some was left, and she needed strong ones).
Its a bit uncharted teritory for me, noone was breastfeeding past 5-6 months in my family...Me, breastfeedind explorer, lol!

I was bestfed for 9 months (yay for my mom ! ), and I have not been sick a day in my life. Very Happy

My sister wasn't breastfed very long, a few months, and she's always sick with something. But she smokes, too.

That's very interesting!

As I said we were all sicky children, but my OH's ( other half ) Mother breastfed him and his sister for 6 months, they were healthy children Smile

I am so glad I breastfeed, it's the best choice I have ever made in my life.

i was BF my mum always goes on about how my sister brought all her friends in to watch lol, don't know how long she fed me for though.... don't think she managed to do it with sister think she was fussy....

but then her son was and wouldn't latch on to her.........

and because we both had our babies at the same time i let my sister see what it was like to have a baby properly feed and drain you dry, so let her give my son one feed lol you should see his face when we tell him now that he had a feed off his auntie lol.

me and my three younger siblings were all breastfed, i think growing up seeing my siblings being fed meant that bfeeding always seemed like a natural thing to do, and i guess thats why when asked i knew that i would be a breastfeeding mummy, i'm just grateful that bfeeding has been going well so far! and i'm loving it.

i no this thread was started in august but i thought i'd reply anyway! My mum was practically forced by the sister on the ward to breastfeed me to the point that she was in tears with it and it put her off. She lasted a day! My siblings werent bf. the only person i no that as breastfed is my hubbys friends mum. Its so sad to say i no only of one person! Everyone else as just ff. I was determined from the start to at least try. I've now been bf for 3wk 1 day and hope i can last as long as some of you ladies on here - 1 year would be brilliant! x
