How do I know if my child is getting enough milk from breastfeeding?

When my little one was tiny, I struggled with the same worries. But as time went on, I got to know my baby better and so I felt I could gauge it more naturally. If my little one was content and was gaining weight as she was supposed to, I was happy.

I also came to realise that so much can affect how hungry a baby is. So I stopped worryingly about every individual feed and starting considering a few days at a time. Sometimes, if my baby had a cold or if the weather’s a bit hot then I know that will affect how hungry she was so I try to bear that in mind and not get too worried about it.
