Re: How do I know I have enough milk?

My lo's did the nipple bobbing thing to at that age, I think they just can't figure it out yet. They get frusterated and don't realize the nipples already there. At least that's what it seemed to be to me.

Re: How do I know I have enough milk?

I have never really leaked, either. My LO only still nurses on one side at 4mo. He started out that way and I briefly went to giving both sides after the lactation nurse suggested it to boost his weight gain. Then he got on a roll and we went back to one side per feeding. He will take the second side after a burp but then he seems to spit it back up, so I went back to one side and he is doing fine. Glad someone mentioned about the normal pumping amounts. I had no idea about that! I would agree that if pumping at those times gives you any stress not to worry about it, but give both sides when he's willing at least until you two really find your groove and he's gaining well. As long as you are nursing on demand and he is peeing and pooping, your equipment is working its magic
