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

Hello!

I realized that I had registered her a while ago and never posted to introduce myself. Seems the little one has taken control of the house

Our beautiful daughter Finley was born Jan 8th and we are loving every minute with her. Even the fussy moments. I had almost given up on breast feeding in those first couple of weeks due to Fin not latching properly, then clamping down so hard that she would bruise my nipples. To add insult to injury she would do the head shake (or as my husband referred to it as the death rattle) while she had one clenched in her tiny mouth. Ouch! So after about a month of exclusively pumping I gradually added in more nursing sessions and we haven't looked back since! I even survived a blocked duct and milk blisters. Now I am a co-sleeping, baby wearing, breast feeding mommy and loving it.

I am looking forward to chatting with you ladies!

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.
