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

oh man, lol, this a a little more painful than starting off first time breastfeeding! Well right now my nipples are really sore and hurt from pumping so much. I pump every 3 hours for 10 minutes or so. My nipples are getting streched out Shocked ugh it hurts.

BUT the plus is starting to show! I have a little bit of an increase with the drops, I am getting a litle more than I use to. I am feeling soreness in my breasts a little more today and that is such a great thing. Then also I feel tingling a lot. I feel the urge to pump more. I really really need her to latch and she doesn't want to she screams "dadadada" everytime now. I don't understand it and it is so heartbreaking. I am really really investing in a SNS and hopefully I can get some meds off the net (canada sells the one drug I want to get that the US doesn't carry... I know the SNS will help with her going to the breast only because she knows there will be a result to her latching. I pray each day she won't be so resistful. anyway....

I can't believe this feeling it is so crazy, when I pump it feels like I am breastfeeding and I feel content and happy for some crazy reason?!?!?!?!?!?!? I feel like I am ready for a huge letdown but *sigh* not there yet... It is only day 3 and I am getting these results... Im just waiting on a better production! It drives me nuts with that feeling of its going to happen but, nothing. It feels like its there but stuck... woooo what a feeling...

I know it is bound to happen soon!!!

I missed this post for some strange reason! sorry!

Glad things are on the up - the SNS will definately encourage her to the breast more i would imagine.

It must be the hormone rush - i always had a 'high' feeling when nursing or pumping in the 1st few months - either that or a sleepy feeling!

keep up the good work :aww:

Wow you are doing very well, I agree with Kay about hormone rush Smile

Yeah lots of skin to skin, also hand express a little and rub the milk on your nipples while having sking to skin and see if she will just latch on herself, keep her close to your breasts and she may well try :boob:
