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 How rude of me!

Post by kaygeebee on Fri Dec 04, 2009 9:40 pm

So I just jumped in and started posting and forgot to introduce myself and tell you anything about me - how rude!!

My name is Karen, I'm from North Wales, and I'm mum to a 14 1/2 week old little boy, who is exclusively breastfed.

We had a lot of problems getting feeding established as my LO was in special care for 8 days after birth with jaundice and an infection. We started expressing and by the time he was 4 weeks old, I had him totally back on the boob - except for the late evening feed which I express and hubby feeds - he loves getting to be involved and it's great that he will take a bottle of boobie juice too.

I'm hoping to breastfeed as long as we both need and want to, and am also hoping to go down the BLW route.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all. x

Oh, and I heard of this forum through the local NCT branch.

I was just looking at one of your facebook status' on BLW - there are loads of us on here, me included, that have done this, so fire away if and when you want any help. We are all very much with WHO guidelines - i know i come here before my health visitor!!

If ever you fancy a coffee or natter, let me know hun - i'm always about!

Thank you, that's fab. I have gone off health visitors already - one of them told me that it wasn't realistic to think I could wait until post 6 months to start solids ......... they'll be telling me solids will help baby sleep through the night next!

I have a fair few friends now that have been very successful with the BLW - and have happy, healthy children who are great eaters and have a good relationship with their food. You can all give me the irrefutable arguments when my 'ever so helpful' MIL starts insisting my boy isn''t getting enough in a few months time. She's already started on 'when can you give him water?' banghead

Hahah! there are so many of those ranting posts on here!
Well, you've seen Corey - he is a prime example of what good looks like! He eats like a horse - and that includes absolutely anything i put in front of him. Its great eating out, as i can take him anywhere and he will just eat whatever we are having!
I'm constantly told he would sleep through better with bottles, but my older 2 were bottle fed and didnt settle into a sleep pattern until they were at least 2, so i say rubbish! (and yes, i was starving him by not relenting to solids at 16 weeks........)
