Hi!

My little man was born on Saturday and came home yesterday. In hospital he was on 3-hourly feeds until midnight, then a break till 6am. I was keen to keep this regime but it only lasted for 1 feed! He then got hungry again in an hour and has been feeding from 1-3 hours since then, including overnight where he fed at 12, 1, 2 and 3.

He was in a separate nursery in the hospital, so I don't know if he woke up in the night or not.

I could really use some help getting him off to a good start rather than this constant suckling. I bf my daughter for 6 months but I was just guessing what to do & the start was rocky. I really want to try to get things running smoothly more quickly this time, so would love a champion to give some hints!

Thanks girls!

Hey, and welcome to our little group I'm going to nominate sam#3 to be your BFing champion. I'll drop her a PM and ask her to contact you.

I'm going to assign brockie to you, I'll drop her a message for you.

Yep! I wrote the code out a couple of pages back, as it's a clickable blinkie.

Hi,

I was wondering if you could help me? My little boy was born 5 weeks prem and was in scbu for 2 weeks. We are now home and he has gained good weight but I am really struggling to settle him through the night. Not sure if he has colic but would love to chat to someone. Also, he doesn't seem to feed for very long (only 20 mins) but he is gaining weight. Is that ok?

Thanks
