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 agree Gem Its a woman, whys is it so amazing that a womans giving birth????????
Very strange.
I was impressed that the woman (not the one who had baby) was bfing the baby. She made her body think she was pregnant so she would produce milk.

How did she make her body think she was pregnant to product milk...???

I don't have UK tv so have no idea whats happened...

I have a friend though whos pre op transgender (male to female) and she thinks that this person insults transgender. She has quite strong feelings on the subject (obviously) and hates every aspect of her male persona... is desperate to get rid of it, and would rather use donor sperm/eggs in the future because although she has been told to freeze her sperm, she feels that she will then be a "father" to the child and not the mother that she should be. I know its just a state of mind in that sense and obviously not every transgender person feels this way... but apparently a lot do...

i think its quite cool, considering many ladies can't even bother to bf or give up at first sight of problem. and relactating is not so simple like it sounds.

I thought it was a fantastic program! They clearly are a loving couple and im sure that child will have a brilliant upbringing.

Yes lactation is very difficult and take some perserverance, I thought it was wonderful what she did!

At the end of the day, so what if he hadnt gone the full way, in mind he was male, and pointed out the risks of having an op and was too scared to have it.
