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 Sooooo demanding

Post by gem1981 on Sat Mar 28, 2009 8:34 am

Hi ladies

Sorry I've been quiet lately, I have been trying to keep up with everything though and popping on when I can.

Daisy is 1 in 2 and a half weeks (can't belive it :tear: ) Her growth spurts up until now have never been too much of a problem, I've noticed a slight increase, but it hasn't been too bad. But her feeding now is more than ever! She won't leave my boobs alone! She is always tugging at my top trying to get them out, which can be slightly embarrasing lol. I can't have a bath lately without having to feed her over the side of the bath because she points to them and screams, and when I give it to her, she literally has 2 or 3 sucks and she's off, so its not always for actual feeding, I think she just likes to know they are there. They have become her comfort blanket. I'm not sure if it is a growth spurt, or just her knowing what she wants and being able to express it more now.

Anyway, I just thought I'd update you with our current situation lol!

I'll try to be on more girls, have missed you xxxxx

hi gem you have been missed! willow can be like that at times, there are days when i dont sit down cos i know she will be on there- at least until some thing catches her attention! but other days when shes punctual every 'feed time'
sounds like Daisy is getting used to the idea that she can ask for them now and liking it! :boob:

Nice to see you back hunny :aww:

And yup- exactly the same here. He shouts, lifts top up - and i too was hanging out the bath with my boob flopped over the side the other night!
I think it is more of a comfort thing at this age - and asserting their rights! Corey also muscles in if any of the others are giving me a cuddle!
And it is out of sight out of mind, cos if im not about he is fine, and as soon as enter the room he starts! Rolling Eyes

Thanks girls, yes Kay, Daisy is also 'out of sight, out of mind'. It's not really a problem, but nice to see others are going through the same. I'm still really enjoying breastfeeding though and can't stand the thought of her stopping :iconsad:

Thank you ladies :group hug:
