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 Hey everyone! New Mommy here!

Post by Melamma on Mon Apr 06, 2009 12:44 pm

Hey everyone :wave: ,
My name is Melissa and i'm 24 years old. I'm a proud SAHM to three beautiful children. Esti, my Queen is 4 1/2 (7/10/04), Dovi my Prince is 3 (1/1/06), and Shira my little Princess is almost 1 (4/16/08).
I am married for 5 years (12/24/03).
We live in Brooklyn, NY
I nursed my first for only 4 months due to the fact that I was young (just 20) and just wanted to go out and wanted my body back. Iknow I should be proud to at least have gotten that far, but I still wish I had gone longer. With my second I nursed for 5 months. My first two are 17 months apart. I was exhausted chasing a toddler and having a new born. My son nursed every 2 hours round the clock, day and night. It got to a point where I was so tired I couldn't function. I had no support and just felt I couldn't do it. With my third I am happy as can be still nursing! She will be a year on the 16th and I am so extatic to have reached my one year milestone. My two older children are in school so I have more time to breath and enjoy the nursing. My baby has some health problems, so nursing has been our way of healing and connecting. IT has been a long hard road, but we're still going strong and there is no weaning in our near future! I originally had my goal of 6 months, hit that goal, then my goal was 1 year after that,almost hit that, my next goal is 18 months and so on! And I know I can do it. I have so much support and I have figured out how to nurse anywhere. Shira is just attached to me. LOL I am so happy I have been able to do this for her.
I'm so happy to be here and thrilled to meet you all! I love you :bighug:

HI there Melissa! :wave:

I am a mum to 3 as well - eldest is just 5, middle just 4 (there are 12 months between) and my baby is approaching 14 months. I didnt manage to breastfeed my 1st 2, for similar reasons to yourself, but was determined this time, and we are still going strong!

Look forward to getting to know you :aww:

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.
