How to know if the breast milk is sufficient for baby or not? Sometimes even after about 2 or 2.5 hrs after feeding I feel my breasts light.

I am taking shatawari powder,oats with milk,ajwain jeera water,sheera alternate days,soups n normal roti sabzi dal..

It can be checked with babies pee count..if baby is peeing 7-8 times a day then it's for baby food and water.. everything is BM..

Aditi Ahuja but I feel my breasts lighter than before also earlier they would leak since yesterday they r not..

Its ok. My breasts used to leak in the first few days and then stopped. If your baby's pee schedule is fine, and (s)he is gaining weight, it's all good. For me, breast pump worked well to establish a good flow. But if you see that (s)he is not peeing as much and is hungry all the time, you can see an paed to consider a formula top up.

The supply of breast milk is established by the demand of it the baby. So after few days it get adjusted and not necessarily leak which doesn't mean that one is not producing much. So, if the baby is satiated and pee count is good enough then no need to worry.

Agree with Ritika Tondwal

Pee count in a day varies from 5 to 7 tyms n if he is awake whole nyt next day around 4 to 5 tyms. Suchi P Aditi Ahuja Ritika Tondwal
