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 16 Months!

Post by TashaAndBump on Mon Jul 27, 2009 10:04 am

We've been breastfeedig for 16 months today (where has the time gone?!) and I'm very happy still to be breastfeeding now especially with this nasty flu bug going around... I'm not even sure I want to stop feeding her before I have the twins but that might be a little bit unrealistic... lol I guess I'm just going to feel my way around. If there's one thing I've learnt with breastfeeding it's that it's not always possible to plan everything out Laughing E.g. I planned to wean Anna as soon as she got on to solids (which I imagined would be about 6 months) LOL

All I know for sure is, we still love breastfeeding and it doesn't feel right to stop yet. :boob: So we'll carry on until it does Very Happy

I think that it may be unrealistic with twins mainly cos you'll be a boob short lol Wink

:boob: Well done Momma!

Just see how it goes, she might snatch a few mins of boob inbetween the twins having a feed!

Very Happy

Well she stopped at 16 months and 2 weeks. Completely without warning - Just one day woke up and decided she didn't want the boob anymore... I'm a bit sad, but a bit relieved at the same time (sore nipples!) but most of all very proud of how far we got together :-)

It might have been that your milk changed because its preparing for the babies ...
