  • Breastfeeding Tip: Knowing if You have a Low Milk Supply or Not

    I found a useful article with information about things that do not automatically mean you have a low milk supply.

    There are some wrong assumptions about what can or can't cause low milk supply or if you have a low milk supply on what causes it.

    If your baby is gaining weight and having an adequate amount of wet diapers, then you DON'T have a low milk supply. 

    The following reasons do NOT indicate a low milk supply:
    - When your baby nurses frequently
    - If baby increases how often he or she nurses during the day or evening: Cluster feeding
    - Baby nurses more often and is fussy in the evenings
    - Baby wakes up frequently at night
    - Your baby doesn't nurse as long as he/she did previously
    - Baby gulps down a bottle of pumped milk or formula after a nursing session
    - Your breasts suddenly seem softer
    - Your breasts don't leak anymore
    - You stop feeling or never felt a let down sensation
    - You get very little to no milk while pumping
