Firstly I must introduce myself. My name is Jannine, ;Im a 24 year old first-time Mum to a beautiful girl named Harriet Elizabeth born 21st of Seprtember '07
I have been exclusivly breast feeding since birth, and have so far never had to use formula and hope to keep it this way. I have had various issues trying to introduce EBM via various bottles to no avail, Im afraid its just boobie my little darling wants!! However the past 4 days have been an utter nightmare, she is refusing to feed off me and screaming, she'll only feed when asleep or half asleep, I have tried some EBM and she drank an ounce, she is feeding well (about 20-30mins) when she does decide to feed but yesterday she went 7 hours before she finally fed, shes also waking 3 times between 8pm and 7am for feeds and then struggling with her 7am feed. Could it be she is ready to wean? Or is she just at one of those awkward stages??
Any ideas greatfully appreciated...
