my child is about 2 months old. He used to show sings of hunger countinously. I have been breast feeding him till date but now I bought lactogen and tried it for a feed. just 30 ml. he was still hungry so I fed him more 60 ml. He became quite satisfied after that. Does that mean he didn't get enough milk earlier? I am worried about it as I really want to continue with BF but I feel I'm not having enough to fulfill my baby's needs. What shoul I do? plz help.

Sona hi. As advised by Babychakra Pre Natal expert Dr Riddhi Chandarana.

Hi Sona ,
Whether your breast milk is enough or no , you can check by observing the urine & stool outputs and weight gain for the baby . Healthy weight gain , 10-12 feeds in 24 hours , 6-10 urine outputs & 1-2 stool outputs in a day - is normal and healthy .
If this is what ur baby follows - milk is enough and there is no need for lactogen . When u start powdered milk like lactogen it has high sugar content so baby will sleep better after that . But that doesn't mean u keep feeding them that .
There has to be a reason u started lactogen for ur baby if u still wanted to continue breastmilk . Please share ur reason , then we can take it ahead from there

I felt BM was not sufficient enough for him hence I bought lactogen. Then too I BF him mostly and give him Lactogen just once or twice a day.
My baby urinates around 10-15 times a day but passes stool just once..
He was 2.5kg at birth and his weight is gradually increasing. He is about 3.10 kgs now. He even passes wind a lot. Does he have some digestion problem or is it normal? Because my inlaws say that this thing of passing wind is hereditary in their family
