A lot of parents worry that their baby may not be getting enough milk. But as long as your baby is weeing and pooing often, and gaining weight, then you don't need to worry. In the first month, he should have at least six heavy wet nappies and two dirty nappies every 24 hours.

Every baby is different and your baby may feed for different lengths of time in the same day.

When your baby has finished the first breast, offer the second breast, to make sure he gets what he needs.

Sometimes your baby will seem to be hungry all the time because he's having a growth spurt (that's when he’s growing more quickly so he needs to feed more often). The more milk your baby takes from the breasts, the more milk your breasts will make. By feeding your baby when he needs feeding, you'll be helping make sure you make enough milk in the weeks ahead.

Sometimes a baby may still be hungry because he wasn't attached properly to your breast, so he didn't get a full feed. In that case, your nipples will probably hurt a lot too and may look squashed.

If you have any worries about feeding your baby, please don't struggle alone. It is really important that you get support from your health visitor or midwife, or call a breastfeeding helpline, or use the 'Local Support' map feature in Baby Buddy app to find out if there are any breastfeeding support groups nearby.

In light of COVID-19, there are lots of charities across the UK offering remote support, including Breastfeeding support. Take a look at the list of charities HERE.
