Q:

How can I know that my baby is getting sufficient milk or not. She is taking breastmilk only. 3 days back her weight was 5 kg and now it is 4.8 kg. Is this normal??? When I press only 2-3 drops will come from breast and when baby sucks does it come in more amount....I m doubtful. Please help....



Hi its just 2 grams of weight loss and frequently weighing her like this will not help you, it will give you stress. Doctor will do the weight checking part so don't worry. Again pressing and assuming the milk supply is not correct, baby's sucking power is different. If your baby's pee count is more than 6, if she is sleeping after the feed and active she is getting adequate milk. Just with 2 grams of weight loss do not confuse yourself. Continue breastfeeding till 6 months exclusively.

It's 200gm of weight loss na...Sometimes she doesn't sleep after feed. She is not sleeping whole day properly but at night she is sleeping for 6 hrs.... Generally babies sleep more....so I am concerned...
