Breast Feeding

How do I know my baby is getting enough milk?

1.Your baby should have at least 6-8 wet diapers per day and frequent bowel movements. Call us if your newborn is stooling less then 4 times a day in the first two weeks of life.

2.Initially, your baby should nurse 8-14 times over 24 hours (every 1 1/2 to 3 hrs). In the first 2 weeks of life, you should wake your baby for feedings if she sleeps beyond 5 hours.

3.Your breast should feel full before feeding and softer after your baby has nursed.

4.In general, your baby should seem satisfied and content after feeding. If you are concerned, you should call us. We may want to have the baby weighed.
