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

I am defintely not producing anywhere near as much as I was. I don't have a let down anymore. Daisy feeds less than she did but nipple twiddles aaaalllllll the time, which drives me a bit mad to be honest, she's always trying to get her hand down my clothes. I have no idea if she'll still be feeding when baby comes, I'm just taking each day as it comes at the moment

I seriously want to lop Lil misses hands off when she does the whole nipple twiddling. It has always been a NO... you can't do that and put her down...but still every.single.time!!!!

Well done, chick!
Make sure to moisturise nipples after she's done and relatch and latch on, till it gets more comfy

Well done Gem!

I found it too difficult, and Corey was feeding less and less anyway, so we did a joint weaning effort just before his 2nd birthday!!

I was planning on tandem nursing but bethany weaned herself off just before her 2nd birthday. i was happy and sad at the same time. But tbh it had got to the point were everytime she latched on it was hurting cos my nipples were getting so sensitive Sad
