Dr. Penny Stanway our breastfeeding expert, is one of the most renowned breastfeeding advisors in the world. Her book 'Breast Is Best' is absolutely incredible.

Hello, am looking for some advice regarding breastfeeding, have an 8 day old, who seems to constantly want feeding or is constantly sucking his finger or mine. Is this normal or am I not feeding correctly? Am worried as it appears to be getting worse and I am getting sore with the amount of feeds that I am giving each day.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated

The more babies suckle, the more milk you produce from the stimulation. It's quite normal for new babies (and old ones too for that matter) to want to suck. There's nothing wrong with baby sucking your finger/thumb or his/her finger/thumb. Some babies are suckier than others too. Carry on as usual and speak to your midwife as face-to-face talking through problems is always better. I used Kamillosan when I had sore nipples but everyone finds different things work for them.

I don't know whether any of you have noticed but we've got a new Breastfeeding Advisor on TheBabyWebsite. Her name is Dr. Penny Stanway and she's a wonderful lady with loads of brilliant advice.

http://www.thebabywebsite.com/section.Breastfeeding.htm

I reckon that if there's one breastfeeding book anyone should buy when they're pregnant, it's her book 'Breast is Best'.
