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

Well, Ive waited over a year, and today i got my 1st negative(ish) comment!
I was chatting to an old school friend on Facebook chat, and she asked how Corey took to weaning off the breast, to which I replied "he's still breastfed". She said "Oh my God, Kay, how are you ever going to wean him off it?"

:bang:

Had to point out i had no intention of 'weaning him off it', and he would stop by himself when the time was right.

Knew i'd get one sooner or later - and it didnt bother me at all! suprised it took a year actually! (and suprisingly, this girl did actually bf her baby for first 6 months lol Rolling Eyes )

Well i met up with her and a few others today at a kids play centre, and whipped em out as soon as we sat down!!! Laughing
I explained to her the reasons i still bf, and one of the girls actualy started saying how we are the only mammals that drink another mammals milk, and think thats 'normal', while bf beyond a year is not!!!! cheers
The friend was put quite in her place, especially as my 12 month old is soooo more advanced than her 16 month old ( :iconredface: sorry - feeling bitchy lol!)
