Answer: Hi dear,baby should not ask for feed every half an hour Ideally it should be every two hours. If you are able to feed fir 20 mins from each side than it is enough Sometimes baby just demands feeding because they like to latch as it gives them soothing g effect. Even when they are not hungry. So stop doing that.

Question: How do i know if my baby is fed well i mean if he is full because he gets hungry in an hour sometimes.
Answer: Dear if your baby is crying after an hours may be either he is not taking the feed properly or your breastmilk is not sufficient. So babies of this age usually take the feed for 25 to 30 minutes divided equally between the 2 sides. If the baby is taking lesser than this he will get hungry sooner. As after a half an hours feed babies usually ask for milk after 3 hours. So make sure that baby is taking the complete feed and not falling asleep. If he is taking the feed and still gets hungry after 1 hours then ur breastmilk isn't sufficient. Try fenugreek seeds tea as it helps in increasing the breastmilk. Hope it helps.

Question: Hi my baby is asking for feed every half an hour. What to do
Answer: Dear it could be happening because ur breastmilk is not coming enough for the baby or he is not taking the feed for longer duration. If it is second and ur baby sleeps while feeding it is normal for babies of that age and u can make him burp when he is dozing of or keeping running ur finger behind his ears to keep him awake. If the breastmilk is not sufficient then I can share some home remdies to improve the breastmilk production. Simply soak some fenugreek seeds in water overnight. In the morning you can boil them for about 5 minutes in water and strain the seeds. What's left is fenugreek tea which you can sip on daily till you feel the milk supply has increased as per expectation. Hope it helps.
