How to ensure your baby is receiving enough breast milk

How to ensure your baby is receiving enough breast milk

The Indian Express

By Dr Aruna Savur

This is a question on every new parent's mind when their baby breastfeeds. The answer is that you look for signs of effective and competent breastfeeding.

Here are some signs:

1. A stable position and a deep comfortable latch.

2. A good suck-swallow-breathe rhythm.

When the baby first latches on to your breast, they suck quickly, which aids in the milk letdown. This then changes into a deep slow suck with visible or audible swallows through the feed.

3. The baby seems content and well fed between feeding sessions.
