I felt pressured to spread out my son's breastfeeds
There are so many well meaning people around me who are only trying to help but make me feel pressure to change what I'm doing. My son feeds every two hours and has since he was born. He's 9 months old now and only just starting to spread his feeds out.
I've had pressure to change it for heaps of reasons - it's not good for him he's gaining weight too quickly, it's not good for you, you're losing too much weight so it mustn't be good for me etc etc.
I'm so glad I stuck to my guns now though because he's a happy, healthy little guy who is now heading back to the 60th percentile for weight instead of the 95th, and I just knew that he'd eventually slow things down a bit.
