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 Dip in milk?

Post by sunnysarah on Tue Dec 16, 2008 10:04 pm

The last couple of nights i seem to have run out of milk, Penny drains both sides but is still hungry for more, tonight she was really hungry, luckily i had some expressed in the fridge (which i was saving for friday, going out Rolling Eyes ) she took the full 4ozs so she was still really hungry. Not sure why my milk has dropped. I have had a nasty cold over the weekend 🤢 . I`m also doing blw which is going well, but havn`t dropped any feeds. Bit worried don`t want my milk to dry up. any ideas why this has happened?

how old is she? Could it be growth spurt?
If you feed on demand your supply will catch up :aww:
