Milk Supply

MILK SUPPLY

Some mothers stop nursing during the first few days or weeks because they feel they aren't producing enough milk. It may seem like your baby is always hungry. You can't measure the amount of milk your baby is drinking so you may worry that you aren't producing enough milk.

In reality, your baby's increased need to nurse signals your body to produce more milk. This is a natural way... your body determines the amount of milk needed and provides an adequate milk supply.

The first weeks may be difficult and frustrating for you but don't give up. If you can resist supplementing your baby's diet with formula feedings for the first four to six weeks, your body will respond appropriately and produce an adequate supply of milk.

Supplementing your baby's diet with formula feeding will only trick your body into believing the current supply of breast milk is enough for your baby.
