Answer: How can I tell if my baby is getting enough milk?
If you notice these signs, your baby should be getting enough milk:
Your baby is feeding at least six to eight times a day .
Breastfeeding feels comfortable and you are free of pain in your breast and nipple after the first few sucks, once your milk has let down .
Your breasts feel softer and less full after feeds.
Your nipple looks the same shape as when the feed began, or is slightly elongated .
Your baby looks a healthy colour, and has firm skin that bounces right back if you pinch it gently.
Your baby is alert when he is awake, and readily asks for feeds.
Your baby is wetting two or three wet nappiesin the first 48 hours, which becomes more frequent. Once he's over five days old, he should have at least six wet nappies every 24 hours. Your baby's wee should be pale and odourless .
You can see your baby swallow while he is feeding, and he seems to be latched on properly. You'll be able to hear him swallowing more clearly too, once your milk has come in.
Your baby changes rhythm while sucking, and pauses during feeds. He should start feeding again when he's ready, and come off your breast spontaneously when he's finished.
Your baby’s poos are a yellowy-mustard colour by the time he’s five days old .
