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

Hi girls,
Nice site.... I'm Alyson, i have 2 children 10 and 6 and am due to have a little girl in just over 3 weeks now.
I bf my other 2 for around 8 months each, even though a bottle had to be introduced from early on with both, because with my first he never put weight on proper, but then all the weight charts are led towards ff babies, but i was young and listened to what they said, but he was also born with a bowel problem and the formula shown this up where as the breast eased it.
With my second she had reflux so had to have a bottle a day to have the medicine.
This one will be bf and am looking forward to it but since having my other 2 I've had implants put in so wondering if it will hurt more but I'm sure I'll find out soon enough lol,
Be good getting knowing you all..

Hi welcome to the forum allykatz cheers

I am so glad your going to have another go at breastfeeding, thats wonderful! :aww:


As for implants i'm not too sure, I know itís certainly possible and many women successfully breastfeed after having implants.




I would strongly suggest you find out were your nearest lactation consultant is before your little one is due and take their advice, I personally find them better as midwives and health visitors more often than not, really do not have a clue and will give you bad advice.



I am so pleased you joined Razz



Looking forward to chatting with you flower

Well i can get colostrum out and have leaked once, so know they still work good hee and my doctor put them in under the muscle and said it will be ok to still feed, luckily i'm at the hospital in a couple of weeks for a check up on them so she can have a good feel of them lol......
I think i'm scared of it hurting more with them first sucks as the nips got a bit more tender but that won't stop me the pain only lasts for a bit till they numb up hey,

I got mine from boots.

It's not cheap, cost me nearly £10.

But it was the best £10 I have ever spent.

Or look on ebay, you may get it cheaper Very Happy

Take care x
