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

topic 5 Protect me, protect my baby - breastfeeding picnic 20/07/09

Post by Drusilla on Thu Apr 09, 2009 9:09 am

For you Facebook people

Morgan Gallagher's blog

Last year (for those of you not in the know) Morgan, who champions infant feeding rights and has intervened at Yarl's Wood Detention centre when breastfed babies had been forcibly separated from their mothers, has organised another breastfeeding picnic this year, following on from the success of last years.
She has also done another petition with regards to legislation protecting infant feeding here which I urge you all to sign - it will be presented to Downing Street on the day of the picnic.
Please attend (either virtually or in person if you can), if you can't make it to London, please check the facebook event for links to the regional events. I am organising the North East of England picnic which will be in Durham City Centre.
The picnic itself will consist of you bringing a packed lunch for yourself and children and there will be :boob: too!
It went very well last year there was no trouble at all and an enjoyable time was had by all!
There was some press presence as well and I am hoping to organise some more for this year's picnic too!
Thank you all!

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.

Yes I was there last year. This year we'll be going to the Birmingham one. It was great, and I'm so proud we went, I love the photos of me feeding Daisy with Big Ben in the background, but to be honest, it was one of the most stressful day sof my life - with the journey!! But, if it's easy for you to get there, go, it' great fun!!

Last year:

Fantastic photos!

As I said earlier, I am planning the Durham picnic - it'll be held on Palace Green outside the Cathedral (I have permission for this) and it'll be held at the same time as the London Picnic.

Here's the link to the Durham Picnic on Facebook.

If anyone lives in the North East and fancies taking over the running of the Durham Picnic, please pm me and I will send you all the details and contacts you need.

Unfortunately I'd managed to forget that I am away in Scotland on holiday that week. Embarassed

I can confirm this is still going ahead, I have acquired the necessary permissions.
I will email the 2 ladies who kindly volunteered to run things!
