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. I joined a while ago but never posted. I had just finished feeding my first baby and was not sure if I would have anything to offer here. But I am expecting baby 2 so thought I would begin posting.

I have a 22 month old called Seren, who I breastfed till she self weaned at 20 months (my milk dropped during my pregnancy and she didn't want to try anymore). Had a very difficult start to feeding but got there and really enjoyed the bond I have with her. Baby 2 is due in Feb, and I fully intend to breastfeed this one again.

As a result of my experiences I am very passionate (a bit too much) about making sure mums have the right information and support and have trained as a peer counseller.

I look forward to talking to you all Very Happy
