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 Another newbie..

Post by Rafiki on Thu May 07, 2009 5:13 pm

Hi there,

Just to introduce myself.. I'm 29 years old and I have two lovely daughters, 3 1/2 years and 1 1/2 year old, so I've been breastfeeding for 3 1/2 years..

I'm here in the first place because I'm interested in cultural differences regarding breastfeeding. I'm from Germany and I've read some news that actually made me wonder about the attitude towards breastfeeding in other countries.. so I guess I'll be more of a "silent reader" in here.

Thanks for the warm welcome :lovin:
and also for the first insight into breastfeeding in Spain.. surprising.. I've read a great book by a Spanish author about bringing up your child and this book is really awesome.. so I thought it might be good over there.

I'll share my thoughts about BF in Germany soon.. got to go back to work now..
