Myth: There is not enough breast milk

Fact: This is not true. Babies actually require very small amounts of milk. This is important to realize, as mothers produce less milk initially. The most important part of establishing a good milk supply is effective and frequent milk removal from the breast during the baby’s first weeks of life. It is important to have the breasts drained well and often by the baby breastfeeding.
