Question: My baby is not drinking enough milk. She is drinking only for ten minutes everytime i feed. Is this enough for her growth? What should i do to make her drink milk? And if she continues this how often should i feed her? Also please tell me how to know that her stomach is full or she is hungry?
Answer: Hi Dear!
A 2 month old baby's stomach is as small as her fist, so if she is having milk for 10 mins its fine, there is no way you can feed her more if she is already full.
You shoulf ideally feed her every 2 hours and also if she gives hunger cues.
If your baby is gaining weight and has adequate amount of wet diaper there is no problem in your supply.
A good thumb rule to know, that helped me in the newborn days.
