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

i beastfed both my daughters the first stopped just before her 3rd birthday was tandem feeding

and my second daughter is still going strong ...shes 34months and dont think shes any intentions of stopping

some days she only on me once other days shes like a newborn wanting bfed all the time which can be exhausting even trying to distract her

most of my friends children stopped before a year and think it weird that i carried on as long ...

good luck and well done for coming this far

i decided thats what i wanted it was amazing how many people were horrified at me breastfeeding aaron more than a year but i said stuff them its what i want not them however aaron chose to stop it by biting me at 16 months i decided after i got a nasty infection where he bit me that was it.
