Re: What do I do if I don't have enough milk?!?

Frequent nursing is just what newborn babies do. You also want to keep in mind that around 3 weeks is prime time for a growth spurt. So, it's likely your little one may be headed right into a growth spurt. The absolute best thing for you to do is resist the urge to supplement and nurse your baby as much as possible. The frequent nursing will slow down, I promise. It is 100% normal for babies to nurse constantly and not a sign of low supply at all.

If you are super worried about your supply, watch your babies diaper output and take her (or was it him) in for a weight check. These are the 2 key factors to look at when determining if you are producing enough milk. If your baby is wetting plenty of dipes each day and gaining weight, you have nothing at all to worry about!!
