* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)

* 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

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

You are doing great! Im sure you can do it till 1 year or even longer cheers

I was breastfed until I was 3mths. Then Mum had trouble meeting my demands and was adviced to supplement with a bottle, after that her supply started to drop to the point where she switched entirely to bottle. I think exactly the same thing happened with my sister.

My mom did not breastfeed us, I asked her about it, and she says at the time when she had us 3 (24-30 years ago) it wasn't the thing to do Neutral

I asked my mum this when I was pregnant as I had no idea, and she said it had been a realy big disapointment that she hadn't been able to. With my older sister she had no help at all from anyone, so didn't know what to do, and then with my brother and me, (we're twins) she'd done all sorts of research, but again had very negative midwives who told her you couldn't with twins, so she didn't manage then either. It was lovely chatting to her about it though, and she's been very suportive which has been great.
