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

Everything we love about breastfeeding

default Everything we love about breastfeeding

Post by gem1981 on Sun Jan 04, 2009 1:04 pm

After all the crap and nastyness towards breastfeeding at the moment I thought it might be nice to start a thread about all the things we love about breastfeeding.

In the beginning I was just pleased to do it, after not managing to feed Ben myself I was so proud to actually be able to do it!

I soon became fascinated with it and passionate about it, and still am.

In the beginning it was great to Daisy grow and know that was purely from me.

Now, I looove it when I get my breast out to feed her and she spits her dummy out and gets to me as soon as she can!

I love our super strong bond which has come from breastfeeding. I love how it has led me on to other things, like co-sleeping and babywearing.

I love to see the passion for breastfeeding in the people around me, such as Shane and my step children. They all support me in everything I do, like going to London to protest (my step daughter was there with me) and starting my course.

I love being able to go out with barely anything in my bag! All I need is a nappy and wipes.

I love how whenever Daisy is grizzly, Ben will shout 'Daisy wants boobie!!!!'

I could go on and on, so will let you all say what you love.

Gem you covered a lot of the things I love too.

I love when my husband talks to Hebe and say's 'Do you want some boobie juice' and when he calls her a 'boobie baby' or 'boobie monster'.

I mainly love the way she looks up at me......melts my heart...

This is a great idea Gem....
I never managed to breastfeed my two previous children & thought to be honest i wasnt able too & had accepted this fate for when Emily was due, However with lots of help from this forum i soon realised that actually anone can with support & resources there to help. I feel closer to Emily i have a special bond that no-one else has, its beautiful looking down and seeing her happy & it honestly gives you the most incredible feeling . I feel blessed to be able to offer her the best a mum can. No matter what time of day or night or where we are,i know she wont go hungry everything she needs is always there ,right temp right amount & perfect for her always. It calms her when shes upset,soothes her when shes teething.And it has made my husband very proud of me. Sorry ive rambled somewhat but believe me could have gone on & on.

awww thank you for this thread Gem.
I love feel of my baby's hand cupping boob when she is breastfeeding. When she shivers when I take breast out for her to nurse. I love to see how she is growing healthy and plumb, I want to grab her chubby cheeks and shout to whole world : its all me!!!!
I love when she is sleep talking "booba" and searching for breast in her sleep, like lil blind fish lol
I love to remember how small she was and how well she was fitting on my lap and look at her now, with her legs dangling down.
I love when she sees crying baby in shops and looks confuded at me and is trying to undo my top saying "baba booba"...
I just love it all!

I love it when Corey falls asleep on my boob, and i then turn into a squishy pillow.

I love it when he cuddles my boob as he feeds.

I especially love it when he unlatches, looks around, laughs and gives everyone a 'Im having booby and your not' look!

I love it when he crawls over on the bed, dive bombs me and latches on in the strangest position.

I love waking up and finding that he is happily nursing away.

I love that breastfeeding found me this forum and made me so many new friends :aww:

I loved the closeness
I was the only one able to feed her
I looked after her inside to grow and then helped her grow when she came into the world
You will never experience anything like it
And im so pleased to have set up this forum and got to know so many fabulous Mums!

There is so much more and so much I am looking forward to with my next child :boob:

i love how close it makes me to my babies (which stays even when theyre older)
and the fact that only i can do it for them
when she falls asleep and still sucks even when i take her off!
the amusing positions willow gets herself in
how comfortable my other children and their friends are (even the teenagers) around bf- im hoping it will help somewhat with the negitivity! both my older girls say they are going to bf their babies ( pale which makes me grandma)
i love that when shes poorly or upset i can offer her boob and shes soothed immediately
i love that aeryn tries to feed her babies boob and asks for juice in the bottles that come with babies Laughing
i love it when willow smiles or laughs while feeding but doesnt let the boob go!
i love thinking one day i might be able to feed another Very Happy

That is one of my faves too!

I think you've all covered them all! I love smiles full of boobie, I love the way she looks at me, I love when she strokes my face, even when she tries to pull my nose off. I love when she pulls my boobie closer, because it's just never close enough! I love when she holds my hand and falls asleep on my boob. I love alot of things, I could probably go on all night...

This is such a fab thread so many other places and people are so negative atm... and I've wanted to shout a lot of the lovely things that lil miss does but fear other peoples wrath if I did so...

My all time fav is...

Lil miss comes up and points to my boobs and says...boob... and grins at me...I get my boob out and she makes this really sweet ooooooOOOOOoooooo sound, giggles then plows her head into my boobs. :boob:

Shes also taken to coming off and going num num num...ahhhhhhh :pml: I'm trying to get it on video and post it as a booby feeding advert... Got milk?

But its a sad state of affairs when your 11 month old gets more excited than your husband when you get your boobs out :pml: nevermind they're not his atm anyways lol
