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 Is this possible? what do you do?

Post by clairelana on Mon Dec 29, 2008 11:00 pm

I think we need some sort of routine to plan for returning to work.
I'm planning on Starting over the next few days. Its going to start properly after new year.

Getting up at 7.30 BF
Porridge/cerial at 9
BF at10.30
Hopfully nap after BF
lunch around 12
BFat 1.30pm
snack at 2.30pm
BF at 4.30pm
Hopefully another nap
tea around 5.30
BF at 6.30
BF at 8.30 for bed.

Am i being unreasonable thinking i can do this. I feel i am.
She currently BF's alot more than this. I would say about once every 2 hours sometimes she will go longer if she has eaten alot.
She has been cluster feeding from around 8 till 10.45ish( this is normal). She is also waking in the night, she will proberly wake at around 3/4ish then again at around 7ish.

What are/was you doing at this age?
Is it possible to get a set routine?

I did have more or less a set routine with Lana but she was bottlefed from 6 weeks so its different.

I am not sure what help I am as I never got into a routine with my eldest but I returned to work when she was 51/2 months old (sob) and I found that she adapted very well. She took less milk when at nursery and did eat more solids but then when I got her home she would have a monster feeding session which I liked as it meant we just could reconnect after being seperated all day. She had naps and milk at nursery and they were great, would let her lead them as to what she wanted in regards to bottles and naps (the only thing that was set was meal times but she coped with that just fine). If a routine would help reassure you then go for it but I personally wouldn't worry about it too much, perhaps just get a loose routine in place??

Yeah i know things will have to move around abit and i'm not going to be timing to the min. This is the first time i've really thought about a routine for her. I'm back at work on the 19th so i'm going to have to leave some sort of instructions when my mum/ Steve has her.

Yes you can do it, but it will more than likely change from what you plan, but when does anything go to plan with children, the make their own rules Razz

Yesterday wasn't too bad i seemed to manage to spread out BF's abit longer. I was at my mums so we had more distractions.

Today so far we statered with -

BF in bed at 7 am kaydi then went back to sleep till i got her up at 9.
Then i spoon fed her porridge and she had a rice cake. She also had some water.
Then at 10.10 she had a BF
She then slept for just under an hour and is now feeding again. (After screaming and pulling my top down and pushing her head in to my cleavage)

I'm going to update this as the day goes on because i'm not sure what were doing at the moment. I will try to space BF further apart if we can manage to.

Also hun while your not there, she will probably decide to eat abit more solids (unless she will take bm from a bottle or cup) and then cluster feed when you get home and attack your breasts Razz
