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 Urgent Help needed

Post by salocius on Sat Nov 15, 2008 7:17 pm

Karen was taking ill early hours of Wednesday morning, the hospital gave her some strong painkillers and told not to feed Tasmin for 48hours, She didn't express as they completly knocked her out.

She tried feeding her Friday but nothing came out, Is there anything we can do to reinsate breastfeeding as Karen is feeling guilty.

Many thanks

It can definately be dun hunny - the key is to get baby on as often as possible - lots of skin to skin, pumping, and if nesseccary, something to increase supply.
Ill get the link on rebirthing for you now until someone with a little more experience comes along :aww:

There is some good info here on relactating and increasing a diminished milk supply.

http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/relactation.html

AS I said, have a look through these until someone else comes along - and send her our love :aww:

I would advise that she gets some advice from GP on what supplements she can take to increase supply.
She would also benefit from seeing or speaking to a lactation consultant - the support line below or GP should be able to put you in contact with one. Use the support line as your 1st port of call.

there is a lot of good info on here also

http://www.asklenore.info/index.html its probably the best resource site for you.

contact the breastfeeding supporter line

Thanks for all your advice, Karen tried to squirt some milk out and there was a jet of milk coming out. Am going to get her to try and feed Tasmin before she goes bed, Tasmin is asleep but she usually latches on when she's asleep anyway.

Am going to make some oat biscuits tomorrow and hopefully she'll feel better enough to give the line a call.

If she was able to squirt some milk out, then thats a really good sign! Baby will be able to get much more out - so yes, get baby on as much as possible, and express in between.
definately give the support line a ring :aww:

Unfortunatly the :boob: has now stopped, we just couldn't get it going again. We've had lots of tears over it

I've perforated my ear drum and will be on antibiotics for about a month until its heeled again, not sure when the hearing will come back Crying or Very sad

On the positive side of things I'm going to continue my peer support training.
