Mugdha Joshi kindly advise!

Dr. Mugdha Joshi

Baby does not come to breast only for hunger. If your baby's latch is perfect, pee count more than 6-8 time s in 24 hrs and weight gain with normal range then you do not have milk supply issue. He may want to confort feed which is normal. Just follow his demand and latch on.
