LO took to bf really, really well from day one, so we haven't had any major problems so far. She was born on the 50th centile and never lost any weight, so jumped up to teh 75th and has stayed there ever since. So [email protected] not exactly worried that she's not thriving! But. She has usually eaten from one boob only each feed, somewhere between 2 and 3 hours (3 and a half if we're out and about), for at least half an hour. Sometimes (well, quite often ) I know she has fallen asleep on the boob, but no matter. Sleeps well, though not through the night yeat. Anyway, about three weeks ago she started fussing after about five minutes on one boob. She kept going to latch on, but then not doing it and looking at me for help, with a slightly confused/worried look on her face. I tried to get her to eat a few times, burped her etc, but she wasn't having it, though was behaving as if she needed to eat more. So I put her on the other boob and she almost bit it off to eat! Since then, nearly every feed has been like this - she eats what seems a smaller amount from both boobs. She goes 2.5-3 hours between feeds, still poos most days, sometimes more than once (though it has been three days now, for some reasons, since she's gone), is still putting on some weight, though not as much as a few weeks ago (though I would expect it to slow down at some point or she'll be a huge!). These are my ideas as to what could be happening: 1. I have allowed her to develop a bad habit, so that she won't get enough hindmilk (but she is gaining weight and weeing and pooing regularly). 2. She is bigger and stronger and gets more out of the breast more quickly bc of this (but the breast she refuses after a few minutes still has milk in it - I usually check). 3. She eats more quickly bc she is able to stay awake longer now and therefore doesn't fall asleep on the boob and give the impression she is eating when she is actually sleeping. 4. She needs to eat from both boobs as she needs more calories as she is bigger now. Any of these sound right to you? Two more quick points: 1. I'm planning on blw so don't want to introduce any food for a few more weeks. She isn't waking through the night any more frequently and doesn't ever cry with real hunger, and doesn't ask to eat any more frequently than she used to. 2. Bc of the way she's feeding, my boobs never feel really engorged any more and I'm worried that this way of feeding will make my milk dry up more quickly- I really want to make it to a year. I have some ebm in the freezer for a few days of work I will be doing from Jan-June, but am worried, as I tried to express yesterday but only got a few drops - used to be a champion at it Please help!
