* 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

I know people in the UK must disbelieve me when I say that I have been offered formula samples as a breastfeeding mother...but now I have evidence to prove that its very common here...

This is a free formula sample attached to a famous baby magazine here in Spain. Oh yes.... well done Spain on your promotion of breastfeeding over formula!!!!

Ive seen it in Asda during their 'baby events' - it is usually SMA progress i have seen - i told him to stick it up his hoop when he offered me one!

If i remember right, i think they can promote / advertise / use speciaol offers on the follow on milks (6 months plus) but not the others. But i may be wrong.

Kay you are correct. It is illegal to promote First stage milks, but not follow on milks.
But because the packaging is so similar they might as well be promoting first milk. :icondoh:

It is allowed because the UK, like many countries have failed to sign up fully to the WHO code on formula promotion, and we haven't signed up at all to "Rights of the Child" which bans any form of formula marketing.

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.
