Answer: •Nurse often – at least every 2 hours during the day and at least once at night. Frequent nursing increases baby’s milk intake.
•Make sure you’re allowing your baby to completely finish one side before you offer the other by waiting upon her cues that she is finished; i.e. pulling off herself and looking satisfied, going to sleep, changing from an active suck/swallow to more of a pacifier suck, etc. Always OFFER the second side, but don’t worry if she doesn’t seem to need it. It’s much more important that she be allowed to completely finish one side than that she nurse both sides. By doing so she will be assured of reaching enough of the richer, more caloric hindmilk that helps her to go longer between feedings.
•Sleep close to your baby (this increases prolactin and frequency of nursing).
•Learn baby massage — this has been proven to improve digestion and weight gain.
