Hey, i've been occasionally getting hamish start feeding, then come off either quizzically, or on one occasion really cranky and upset (he wasn't a happy camper that day already) and say 'stuck' and i think sometimes even point to my boob and say 'milk stuck'.. any idea what this is about ???

Slower flow/letdown, perhaps?

Maybe letdown? I dunno. Audrey's being crabby nursing too, don't know if it's impatience for letdown or teeth. She'll latch on, nurse for 20 seconds, then come off crying and signing 'milk'. Frustrating.

Maybe if he's teething he's having trouble latching properly?

We're officially done here, since a week or so ago.  F hadn't asked for milk in almost a week, then her teeth were bothering her so she did one time and it was like she had forgotten how to latch. She couldn't figure it out :( I knew they forgot, but didn't think it would be so fast!  I thought she would be upset but she wasn't, just a bit quiet...and she hasn't asked again since.  It's funny - over the past three weeks she's frequently been watching her newborn cousin feeding so I was expecting lots of requests for milk, but it's like seeing him just confirmed in her mind that she's a big girl now and doesn't need milk like he does. She is seeming like a big girl in so many ways recently so it's all a bit  :'( and  :) together.

I think that that's somethingthat you'll be feeling again and again over the next 20 years! You;d never truly wish them to stay frozen in time- but there's something sad about it when they move on!

It is that.  Be kind to yourself.  You'll have a dip in hormones again now as you did post delivery, so expect to feel a bit blue and if you don't, consider it a bonus :-*

So true.  My girls are so big right now, but sometimes it's when James does something that makes him seem older that's the hardest, maybe because it's so easy to remember his tiny baby days still.

At any rate, big ((((hugs)))) Nuala and well done! :) :-*

do you find it harder erin as he's your last? (i assume- that;s a bit of an assumption on my part- you may well be planning more...)

No, definitely not planning any more here, and very happy with that decision.  But yes, it does make it harder -- and it's also harder seeing how big the girls are (Katie will be 8 in a week and a half --- 8!!!!!) and knowing how quickly it really does all go.  :(

She's stopped. Think it was teething for us. Was a frustrating couple of weeks. Found that if I could do something to distract her like play with her fingers or sing, she'd be a wee bit better.
