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 feeding to sleep.

Post by claireea on Mon Dec 01, 2008 9:58 pm

Just wondering how many of you ladies feed your little ones to sleep at night. I always feed mine right before bed and put her down she wakes up then goes straight back to sleep should i try to stop the feed directly before?

Olivia did this until she was 11/12 months but she would stay asleep, so your quite lucky! and decided on her own she no longer wanted to booby to put her too sleep, it isnt a bad thing, and what ever works, works!

Dont fix somthing that doesnt need fixing Wink unless you want it to change?

Brody was exactly the same. He gradually woke less and less in the night then decided he didn't want feeding to sleep at 19 months.

Yes I feed Tiny Terror to sleep. Although we have started night weaning, I don't feel inclined to stop that.

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.
