Signs Your Baby Is Not Getting Enough Breast Milk
Most breastfed babies thrive, but it's so important to be prepared to recognize and solve any breastfeeding problems, such as low breast milk supply. You should contact your baby's doctor to discuss the possibility that your baby may not be getting enough breast milk:
- She is having less than two soft stools each day during her first month.
- Her urine is concentrated—darker yellow in color.
- She is having less than one to two wet diapers daily, during the first three days, or less than six daily by day six.
- She is very sleepy and difficult to wake at feeding time.
- She is nursing fewer than eight times in twenty-four hours.
- Your nipples are particularly sore.
