Q:

hello mummies, i want to ask that how can i recognize that my baby is still hungry or not after feeding? bcoz my elders are saying to me that baby remains hungry after your feeding. my milk is not enough for her. and they insist me to give other options like powder milk, fruit pulp juice, water.... am very upset with all that am not able to feed my baby properly. plz help drs and baby chakra team.

Don't worry.. kids carry for many reasons.. like due to sleep, boredoms, colic pain etc etc. Pee count is helpful to know. Min.6-7 times. Don't give anything other than BM till baby completes 6 months.

Sometimes babies request frequent feeding at this time even if they are thirsty, due to excessive heat. Please stick to only breast milk. Check pee count and weight gain. If that's ok turn a deaf ear to what anyone is saying. Don't get dissuaded, you are doing great by breastfeeding your kid.

First plz plz don't believe when anyone says that ur baby is still hungry or ur breast milk isn't enough for him... I have had similar situation when I was urged to give top feed to my girl...
Ur body makes enough milk to satisfy ur baby's need... Babies this small tend to take feed almost 24/7 which is normal... If the baby is active and is doing enough peepees in a day... U r doing perfect...
Don't fall for the top feed advice plz...
