Since breast milk is the only source of nutrition for your baby,try making it more healthier and richer.To make your milk richer so that your baby could sleep longer and get more chubby,you need to consume:
1-eat balanced diet including fresh vegetables and fruits
2- increase your diet by eating extra 500 calories in a day
3- include lot of proteins, especially from animal meat.like egg,chicken,mutton ,fish

Answer: Dear keep on breastfeeding your baby that will make your baby healthy. It depends onnthe birth weight of ur baby. On average, babies gain about one pound each month for the first six months.
