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 first time Breastfeeding older mummy

Post by kayzee on Thu Mar 26, 2009 5:33 pm

Helloooooo everyone :wave:

My name is kaye and im nearly 40 Embarassed Very Happy and have 4 wonderful kids Ben who is 16, Lee who is 15 and has asperegers, Tia my little girl who is 2yrs 4 months going on 10 Rolling Eyes and my 11 day old baby girl Poppy

I have tried and failed at :boob: twice because i was too ashamed at my age to ask for help and people assume that because i have 4 i know what im doing, well i dont im just learning especially at :boob: , We have been bf for 11 days and has mostly been really lovely apart from the sometimes continuous cluster feeding. One night was every 20 mins for about 5 hours and last night was constant till about 5 in the morning Rolling Eyes But weve had 3 nights of going down at 12 and not waking till half 7 so we will persist Very Happy

I do have a few questions about :boob: more to put my mind at rest and some seem quite silly but im sure theyve been asked before as we are all in the same boat :aww: :aww:

Look forward to getting to know everyone and exchanging tips and worries. take care all luv kaye and troops :wave: xxxx

Hi Jane :wave:

Thanks for the warm welcome it is very much appreciated :aww: I noticed your little girl is Emily, well poppy was an emily for the first week until i went to register her and the baby girl in front of us had exactly the same names as we had chosen so she became a poppy Very Happy xx

Hi Kaye, congrats on your first weeks of BF - the cluster feeding can be a pain but it does settle down.

And there are no silly questions when it comes to BF!!

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.
