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 Hello (another one from North Wales here!)

Post by salj1980 on Mon Jun 07, 2010 11:17 am

Hello!

I've just posted a query on the 0-12months board, but had better introduce myself here as well!

My name is Sal, and I joined the forum a few months ago but have only just got around to posting anything! I've loved reading all the posts though - it's wonderful to find a forum which is so friendly and supportive - I feel like I know you all already just from reading your posts!

I live in North Wales (there seem to be quite a few from the area on here!) with my partner and our 6 month old boy Huw - who is an absolute delight and the light of our lives!

I have exclusively BF'd since birth, and we started our BLW adventures about a month ago - Huwie loves eating and so far everything we've offered him has been a success! Mealtimes are great fun for all of us and I can't imagine going through all the pureeing and spoonfeeding malarkey!

I carried Huw for 4 months until he started to get a bit heavy and I was getting bad backache, but he's taken to his buggy well since then, though I do still carry him occasionally as I miss the extra snuggles when he's wrapped up with me!

We also use cloth nappies 90% of the time, though do use disposables when we're out and about - we do try to use the eco-friendly ones if possible.

OH and I grow a lot of our own veg during the summer months, in our very small garden and on an allotment I share with a friend.

Hmmm...anyway, that is about me in a (fairly big) nutshell! Thanks for reading!

Thanks for the welcome both of you!

Kay, I'm in Llangollen, so not quite as North as you are.

Tell us about yourself : I'm a SAHM to Kacie aged 10.5 months. I'm very into an AP way of life, baby-wearing, co-sleeping, breastfeeding, etc. We're coming up to one year and I'm looking for places where I won't be looked down on for extended breastfeeding. I have no intention of weaning until Kacie wants to. We're also traying to conceive baby no. 2, so really hoping to tandam feed and will be looking for support to do this too.

Hello! As you can probably tell I'm not going to be the most active member of the forum - I do check most days but never seem to get around to posting! But I'm off to the cloth nappy section to post now...!
