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

Well i`ve finally had the " you should stop bf now as Penny doesn`t need it anymore". Fortunatly it wasn`t to my face. My mum said to my hubby that i do`nt need to do it anymore as Penny is over one & doesn`t need it now. Even if i wanted to WHICH I DON`T how could i explain to her when she`s pulling at my top for milkies that because she`s turned one now she`s not to have it. I really wish people would mind there own, what has it really got to do with them!. Mum`s never been into :boob: but it would`ve been nice to get a well done.

Ah well when you're being criticised by medical academics who know more than the WHO who recommend BF up till 2 years I think you should take their advice very seriously indeed Wink Not being sarky about your mum who I'm sure is lovely, just as a general rule of thumb thing Very Happy You're right there.s no way you could or even should explain to Penny! My mum didn't bf me and says the odd undermining comment, but I figure Deborah and Michael's comments are far more important in that instance Cool

Awww, we all get it sooner or later :aww:
I think because i said my goal was 12 months with Corey, people automatically assumed i would just STOP at 12 months, which is not the case! I want to and he wants to (him probably more than me now lol!).
The person i get the most negativity from is a woman i dont know behind the till in our village shop scratch WTF is got to do with her i have no idea! I go in and she always comments what a happy jolly BIG boy he is, and then always finishes the conversation with " You're not STILL feeding him are you?"
I always smile and say "Yes, and he is a happy jolly big boy for it?!" Laughing
