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

Can you diet when BF? Does eating healthier/less affect breast milk?

I'm doing slimming world and you have to have extra of certain things - ie the calcium and fibre intake - but so far my milk is fine.

Thank you! I'm worried because I eat so much now I don't want her to get less if I stop eating so much, you know?

Nope dieting will NOT affect your breast milk!
Read here

'Motherís milk is designed to provide
for and protect baby even in times of hardship and famine. A poor
diet is more likely to affect the mother than her breastfed baby.'

Tell us about yourself : People who have kids by more than 3 different men are SLAGS. They don't give a shit about the welfare of their children, otherwise they would be keeping their bloody legs shut and creating a STABLE environment for their kids, either in a stable relationship or as a single mother - because single mothers are perfectly capable of being fantastic parents. If you want to sleep around use some fucking contraception until you are sure your partner is in it for the long haul, it is not fucking difficult. Kids need stability - they don't need a succession of men coming in and out of their life.
