    Depends on how much foremilk you have...

    Midwives and such say to feed for so long on one side and then to swap to the other one but I wouldn't if thats what you are doing. Id be inclined to feed bub from the same side twice. So one feed you just stick to a side and then the next feed you do that boob again. Then change boobs after the second time (am I making sense? Lol) thats just to make sure youve emptied the boob properly and bub isnt just getting more of one type of milk.

    This @LoCo. I've always had an abundance of milk. I could use the same boob for 4-6hrs of feeding.

    Also you swap to boost milk, block to reduce quantity.

    It's called block feeding so within a certain period (I can't remember exactly, I think it's 3 hours) no matter how many times she feeds or for how long, you give the same side and then switch after that to the other side for the next time period.

    As for the ties, it's best to get checked by an IBCLC. The upper lip tie is quite easy, if she has a tie when you lift her top lip the frenulum should attach at the top of the gum, if it's lower (my son's went all the way to the bottom of his gum!) then it stops the lip from flanging out properly. As for the tongue tie it's harder to tell but basically a tie is when the frenulum connects too far forward. My son's was pulling his tongue down in the middle when he cried (easiest to see when they're crying). Dr. Tim Johnston at iKids dental in Fremantle lasered my son's ties.

    No worries hun. It was hard when we started. I had the same problem when dd was little but It gets easier believe me, particularly when your body figures out how much of what milk your baby needs!! hang in there hun, hard I know but you can do it

    Thanks for the bra tips bought them yesterday.

    I have decided against mixed feeding and have switched back to exclusively breastfeeding. Bubs belly does a bit better on it "I think" as formula seems to be giving her even worse wind and maybe reflux

    Oh well looks like it's goal setting for me. Well I've hit a month next for the 8 week mark๐Ÿ‘
