Since the start of my breastfeeding career, I have heard too much of the words 'Maybe there is nothing coming out'. It is extremely frustrating and demoralising to hear these words but at the same time, understandable that other people may think that way. Babies should not be fed to a schedule and I have stuck to this rule from Day 1. So, when Aaron asks for a feed just 30 mins after he's had one, its only logical that people think he didn't get enough the first time.
What they don't realise is that breastfeeding is not only for a baby's nutritional needs. Its also very much for a baby's emotional needs. Thats why the act of breastfeeding is also called NURSING. A baby may feed for comfort, to calm him/herself, just to be close to mom, to deal with frustrating situations, to soothe teething gums, to go to sleep, to deal with developmental milestones etc etc etc
So you see, it really is a multi purpose tool that a mother can use to nurture her child. I'm deaf to all comments saying that I'm spoiling him by feeding on demand.
