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

Rumbling belly?!

default Rumbling belly?!

Post by toriaaaaTRASH on Sun Jan 04, 2009 10:27 pm

Caitlyn has always had a rumbly belly and I have always shrugged it off as gas, but tonight I'm cautious because I've stopped her bottle topups. Almost 54 hours on I'm getting worried she isn't getting enough. Is it possible for her to starve? I have been googling this with no avail. Any ideas girls? It's only 8oz but she doesn't seem to have been on me more to build up supply. Maybe I already had enough? I don't know!! I just don't want her to starve. She isn't crying. Infact she has gone from being a fussy, wingey, sicky baby, to a very contented, happy baby who hasn't been sick once since her last bottle of formula. It's just the rumbling that concerns me. Any articles on bottle to breast would be VERY MUCH appreciated, as that's what I've been looking for. Just want to check I can't starve her without knowing I'm doing so. Sorry for the essay.

i dont think youve anything to worry about, the fact you say shes contented is reassuring! as for the rumbly belly, its probably just digesting noises or wind, aeryn always had a rumbly tummy and she still pumps alot!! Very Happy im sure one of the other girls will have some links or advice but i dont imagine youre starving her :aww: :aww: :aww:

if she was starving she would let you know im sure. As long as baby is alert & giving lots of wet nappies generally all is well x
I would say try not to worry but thats what us mums do best !

have just listened to my baby's belly (who is flat out stuffed after her lunch and a booby) and it rumbles, as is my 3 year olds who has just eaten a sandwich and 2 apples. Everyone's belly makes noises,its normal.

I'm sure everything is fine, as you say she is happy and content. She would definately let you know if she was hungry!
You are doing so well, well done cheers :aww:
