This is a common question among breastfeeding moms as you are unsure and still learning. After all, you want to make sure that your baby's getting all the nourishment she needs and, well, you can't actually see how much milk your baby's drinking when you're nursing! :) While most moms are able to provide their babies with all the milk they need, there are times when babies don't get enough. And when this situation isn't addressed, a baby can suffer from dehydration and other issues.

Signs that your breastfeeding baby is getting enough nourishment:

Your breasts feel softer after nursing, because your baby has emptied some of the milk that was making them firm.After a feeding, your baby seems relaxed and satisfied.After gaining back her initial weight loss after birth, your baby continues to gain weight. (Most babies lose between 5 and 9 percent of their birth weight and then regain it by the time they're about 2 weeks old.) A rough guideline: In the first month, your baby should gain 5 to 10 ounces a week; in months 2 and 3, she should gain 5 to 8 ounces a week; in months 3 to 6, she should gain between 2.5 and 4.5 ounces a week; and from 6 to 12 months, she should put on 1 to 3 ounces a week.
