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

:aww:

Mine still go through good and bad phases now - you get a good week and think you've cracked it, and then they are back to square 1!
At least I am not used to a full night sleep, so its not going to be a culture shock when this one comes along!!!

Yea, good and bad nights here too. Our LO generally sleeps with us which helps but she does start the night in her cot which is in a sidecare position next to our bed. I don't even bother to look at the clock now when she wakes- but I would estimate that at 8 months she still wakes about 4 times a night between 7pm and 7 am. We have done the 3 hourly wakes and then the one hourly wakes and just when you think you have something steady going it all changes again!

I just think positively that one day she will sleeep through the night - in her own bed - but it won't be tonight or next week, but one day she will!
