A baby will cry for various reasons. At times it may be just from boredom. Try different calming techniques before you panic and assume that you are making less milk. If the baby is passing urine a minimum of seven times a day and the weight gain is on track then milk is sufficient. Never give any formula or other food be it Nan or lactogen without discussing the same with your doctor. Also never feed the baby with a bottle as that will cause nipple confusion. Feed often 8-10 times a day and that will surely help in increasing your milk supply
