How do I know my baby is getting enough milk

following signs will help you be sure that he's feeding well:
Your baby is feeding at least eight to 12 times in 24 hours
Your baby has one or two heavy, wet nappies in the first 48 hours. Once he's over five days old, he has five or six heavy, wet nappies
You can see your baby swallow while he is feeding, and he seems to be;latched on properly. You'll be able to hear him swallowing more clearly too, once your milk has come in;(NHS 2016b).
Your baby changes rhythm while sucking, and pauses during feeds. He should start feeding again when he's ready
