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 just wanted to share this with you all, the trip to Wales at the weekend made me realise how confident I am feeding in public. I really dont feel bothered or embarrased like I did 4 months ago. One night we were in the club bit and the amusements are at the back, and we were in the amusement bit and I said to Shane I was going to go and sit down and feed Daisy, so I went and fed her and I noticed a man turn around and look at me, then he said something to the man he was with, and then he turned and looked at me - I just stared at them and they looked embarrased and looked away. I didnt feel embarrased, I just thought 'yes??, I'm feeding my baby?!'
Anyway, I just wanted to share that as I remember posting on here in the early days as I was so nervous to feed in public, and I think its nice for new moms to see that confidence can grow to the point where you dont really think what you're doing, you just do it.
I'm sure you lot are partly responsible for my confidence, so, thanks gals!!! :group hug:

Well done you!
I find just giving the stare puts off anyone who is thinking of making comment!

Tell us about yourself : People who have kids by more than 3 different men are SLAGS. They don't give a shit about the welfare of their children, otherwise they would be keeping their bloody legs shut and creating a STABLE environment for their kids, either in a stable relationship or as a single mother - because single mothers are perfectly capable of being fantastic parents. If you want to sleep around use some fucking contraception until you are sure your partner is in it for the long haul, it is not fucking difficult. Kids need stability - they don't need a succession of men coming in and out of their life.
