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

Very Happy
Hi everyone

I'm 36 - a first time Mummy with a beautiful 7 week old baby boy !!

I'd decided when I was pregnant that I would try breastfeeding but was not going to beat myself up if I didn't like it or couldn't do it...

To my delight though, we got the hang of it pretty quickly.. even though one of the nightshift midwives made me give my son formula on his second night in the world... (she just wanted a quiet night I think...) I persevered and my milk came in on the third day... and am so glad I did!!!

I have been exclusively breastfeeding ever since, although I don't knock anyone who doesn't breastfeed as there are lots of reasons they don't... I'm just happy that I'm able to do this for my son!!!

Sorry about the waffle and I look forward to chatting..
