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 Aargh.... someone help this poor person!!

Post by kaygeebee on Wed Sep 22, 2010 8:02 pm

Someone getting some really bad advice on the pregnancy and parenting forum of www.getwed.com

I know I should butt out but I really really want to reply and I can't 'cos I'm banned (don't ask ......... long story . fallout with the forum owner a long time ago!)


I'm a bit worried my milk may be drying up. This evening when i was feeding Jack tonight after a few minutes of feeding nicely he started fussing and making noises. I winded him and tried again a couple of times, but he kept on fussing. I switched sides and he fed well again for a couple of minutes then fussed again. In the end i gave him half a feed of ebm which he polished off before settling after a bit of a whinge. For those of you who have or are bf-ing does this sound like my milk drying up? Then of course there,s the fact that over 5 weeks he's only put on 7 oz. In the past 3 weeks it's only been 1 oz!

Sorry to say huni but it does sound like its drying up. If hes not been feeding properly for a week or so, you may not have noticed while hes still suckling. Have you tried to express to see what he is getting?
Also with the weigh gain, I had that with Natasha (she was ill though) and I switched to formula and her weight gain went up straight away.

I hope he gets something decent in him soon hun
