Quick q. for breastfeeders

Sounds silly but - do you clean your boobs before breastfeeding? If so with what? I assume not, but it's just popped into my head and now I can't stop wondering!

I never did - never even occured to me - just my usual showers each day - I mean your boobs don't exactly get dirty do they - mmmmm no never thought of it so never did!

No, I don't. I would have thought if anything you need to clean them afterwards to get rid of any left over milk, but I don't do that either!!!
Ohhhh, due tomorrow I see!! Hope you don't have to wait too much longer to meet your lo, do you not what colour you are having?

i never did either never done my lo ne harm. i'd imagin it'd b a bit of a faff tbh!

Ok thanks, that's what I thought - am having irrational, last-minute flaps about all kinds of silly things. Keep thinking there are important things that everyone knows except me & I've just somehow managed to overlook them and am going to do something awful or fail to do something important!
Yes, due tomorrow and so impatient! Don't know the colour but I think pink. Had a sweep today and have had a bit of a bloody show so fingers crossed!

Oooh, good luck!

Fingers crossed!! Maybe all the irational flapping is a form of nesting lol I had Barney within 24hrs of my sweep so fingers crossed you'v not long to wait now.

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
