Hello Simone, and welcome to Milky Mums.

I know exactly what you mean about about pressure to wean. Carla is only 4 months and I already have people asking when I'm going to stop and they seem suprised when I tell them not in the near future.

You'll certainly get lots of encouragement on here.

Hello & welcome!

Keep going! Two years is the recommended minimum time for breastfeeding.
Lucinda is 4 months and I can't imagine stopping yet. She can have it as long as she wants it!
Look forward to chatting.

Welcome to the site Simone Smile

You stick to your guns and don't let anyone pressure you into doing something you don't want to do, or more to the point - stopping doing something you enjoy. Short of actually having my children in the first place, breastfeeding is the best, most wonderful thing I've ever done, nobody is making us quit before we're ready!

Thanks ladies!

i guess my biggest worry is that both my boys are slow to put on weight.....Tallon is in the lowest percentile....but he is happy and healthy...he was rolling both ways at 3 months and is VERY alert and happy and content....he sleeps 10hours at night but i still get him up during that time for a dream feed. people just dont take into consideration the fact that my husband is half asian therefore i wont have big kids. uggh i dunno sorry bad day have made an appointment to go talk to a Lactation Consultant and see what they say, we are happy but im just worried about his weight. he's reaching all the milestones and i demand feed so i dont see how i can do anything different

Hi there don't worry as J is six month old now and i'm still feeding and he still want's boobies and three meals a day he now 17lb 3oz i had a lot of problems at the beginning i got a blocked duct then got mastitis twice and nearly gave up in the first few week but now i'm so glad i didn't but while i was having these problems i tried to express but it was so painfull we gave him formula which he was allergic to so made me want to do it more.We found a cow and gate senstive bellies which he tolerates if he as to. I was also allergic to my breast pump which they had never seen before they thought it was thrush and it wouldn't go away with the treatment untill they found out my boobies weren't pleasent so hang in there. But persevervance and hard work at first as really paid off 's growing well and putting 4oz a week on so keep your chin up there allways support for you see your health visitor or midwife too don't struggle on your own.Without my health visitor i think i'd of given up. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Stop worrying about giving up J started having baby rice before bed at about four and half month with my bm and by five three meals a day and still milk inbetween maybe three to five short feeds too so don't let people talk you into stopping so enjoy every minute and now he six month on Sun just gone i'm still giving him boobies as he doesn't seem to want water do as the little cherrubs want and whats best for them and they know what they want and he dropped the feeds he doesn't want so best to go with the flow Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Don't worry about your babies being slow to gain weight. As long as they gain weight, no matter how slow it might seem, it is perfectly normal. Lucinda is a dainty little thing. About 11lbs at 4 months (will look it up to see what that is in kgs later!) but she's hovering around the 9th percentile. I'm not at all worried, she is just like me and my sister when we were babies and we were formula fed. We just happen to have slim babies in our family. She's still on course to double her birth weight at 6 months and treble in a year.

Aw, bless Lucinda! Beth is just over 11lb and she's only 8 weeks old! She's a real bloater, and has jowels (?) and a double chin!

All babies are so different regarding weight, aren't they? My friend exclusively bf her little boy and he was practically off the charts as he was overweight, according to the red book charts, and the health visitors were concerned about that. Now he's 4 and he's just a big, stocky boy. You can't win Neutral

I think baby weight is very deceptive. Most of Lucinda's friends of the same age are about 14 - 15lb but they don't look that much bigger. Chubbier but not really any taller. The other week at our BF group there was a 10 day old baby there. It was tiny - but apparently weighed 10lb! Lucinda was 9lb 13oz at the time and she was twice the size of it. So don't know how that works??

Hi Austraila and Emma

Post  jillsherb on Tue Apr 28, 2009 11:59 pm

When Jake was born he was 7lb 3oz and putting a 1lb on every two week and i was worried he was gaining too much but he was perfect on the centile anyway he started slowing down at about 3 and half month and now he puts a pound on a month which is 4oz a week right in the middle of what they should be gaining now.I personally think they make such a big deal about babies weight as every one different as jake isn't fat he very long but my husband is 6ft. They seem to have growth spurts too do nothing but eat or don't at all and i worried he was eating too much or not enough at eight week Jake only weighed 10 14oz he was three week early too.Now Jake dropped just below the line but they say he healthy and well nothing to worry about so don't worry too much about it. Very Happy Very Happy
