I am so proud to be posting in this section on a positive note- with DD I had a horrid BF experiance (nothing working lots of stress in my life and many feeding issues and was 100% bottle by about now)
but I was determined to give it a go with this baby and wow so far so good
however my little boy is well hmmm not so little he is a big boy... he was born 4.465 and lost a bit in the first few days but then at his one month check had put on 2 kg and has put on another 1.1kg this month.. needless to say he is off the size charts and everyone thinks he is alot older..
now dont get me wrong i think its great he is 'thriving'(as chn puts it) and it is doing wonders for my BF confidence considering I have had an aggressive breast reduction about 10 years ago and had such a bad experiance with DD.
But I have always heard you cant over feed a breastfed baby- is this true?... not that I am considering limiting his feed or anything but just want to make sure my little man cant do damage by eating so much and gaining weight so fast...
he is fed on demand - during day can go up to 3 hours between feeds at night has 9 hours sleep then feed followed by 3 hour sleep. so he really isnt feeding a huge amount.
