    Default Want some breastfeeding advice from an expert?

    Hi everyone!

    We're busy putting together the script for our Early feeding episode of our Bub Hub TV show.

    Now we're after some REAL questions to put to our expert panel!

    Do you have a question regarding BREASTFEEDING.

    Maybe ...

    alcohol and breastfeeding
    attachment issues
    night feeds
    weaning

    Please ask them here!!

    Ummm - how often to start feeds, how long each feed should take, how long sleep periods should last, weight gains per week/fortnight, fluid/food intake for mum, cluster feeding - when/why....

    I will probably think of more but these were some of my issues starting feeding

    Weaning! Should I be dropping feeds now my bub is 10 months? He is eating 3 solid meals plus snacks each day. I am generally feeding around 5 to 6 times per day (usually just one feed overnight, sometimes none). He's also starting to refuse his feed before bed - should I be worried? I feel like I need to keep the feeds up because he's so little (only just over 8 kgs). Any advice would be great thanks!

    What to do when you have weaned and they suddenly start showing interest in feeding because they have seen babies doing it/know their future sibling will get it. Interest via sitting on lap and pretending/asking.

    Eta: Weaned at 2 and is now 3..

    Is it easier the second time or is there still a period of adjustment?

    How to tell between bubs being satisfied and just enjoying staying on the boob vs low supply.
    Reasons why milk might never come in "Bam" with sore boobs the way everyone says it will, and ways new mothers can avoid experiencing such failure in initiating milk production in a timely manner.

    Seconding earlier post re: how to increase supply, but with suggestions on time management for how to fit in the necessary measures with twins, eg. BF twins plus comping plus pumping and settling bubs while still having time to sleep enough to not diminish supply, and to eat, drink and toilet. (My LC's instructions for boosting supply required 32 hours a day for the twins before I could look after myself!)

    Breastfeeding basics! My bub had a fantastic latch & despite sitting in with 3 lactation consultants he was not transferring any milk the lactation consultants did not pick this up so bub was hungry & losing weight rapidly. It took one community nurse to sit down and put her ear to bub while he was feeding..she could not hear the gulp. She then educated me what to watch and to listen for..so simple but easily missed for a new Mummy!

    Also could discuss galactogogues? Also a how to on breast compressions and how to hand express in the early days to relieve engorgement and promote attachment.

    I second this, I ended up having to put my son on formula as he got sick & put in hospital from not getting any milk from me, when I thought he was

    Also ways to prevent sore nipples (besides nipple shields) I ended up with scabs & blood clots

    I don't know if this is still going but if ti is...

    I would like to hear about the not so obvious tongue tie and it's issues.
    My DS2 is pushing my nipple out after 1-2 gulps and loosing the good latch.
    Also why I hear a pop every now and then like he is loosing suction.
