What is she doing???

default What is she doing???

Post by gem1981 on Tue Jun 02, 2009 8:32 am

Daisy hasnt left my boobs alone for the past 24 - 48 hours. She comes for a feed, spends around 30 seconds on one boob and then screams till I get the other one out, then she feeds for another 30 secs and back to the original one. Etc, etc. This results in me being sat with both boobs out most of the time, which isnt a big problem in the house, but going out will be.

Any ideas why she's doing this?

It sounds similar to us at the moment hun - if you read my thread 'struggling' a couple of posts down, there are a few replies there :aww:

I think we have basically established it is an age thing - and they go through it whether bf or not - its just that our boobs take the toll if they are!

It has to be an age thing because lil miss does exactly the same at the moment. She seems to swap between the boobies and its driving me nuts. Luckily because of the negativity here towards breastfeeding, we stopped public breastfeeding a long time ago... but still when we have company at home its a little embarrassing. She hasn't stopped yet though.
