Breastfeeding mothers often wonder if their baby is getting enough milk. Breast is not a bottle; it may not lift the breast under light to see how many milliliters of milk drunk baby. Indeed this is a good thing! We must find out whether the baby is getting enough milk, not how much milk they drink. Habits of the people who be guided in number to make a mother worried about the amount of milk to the infant. However, there are several ways to find out the baby has enough milk. In the long-term weight, gain is the best indication. However, when using a standard weight gain formula-fed infants would not be appropriate for breastfed babies. How to quickly know the baby is getting enough milk is to see how well the baby is feeding and watching the baby after a feed – whether the baby is comfortable, happy, what she was looking for, or sucking his hand?
Getting your baby enough milk:
1. Way of feeding infants varies;
Babies get enough milk amount will suck the breast with a very distinctive way. As you inhale, your chin down and stay under as long as you inhale. Intervals seen in the baby’s chin. It shows the milk to meet baby’s mouth as he sucked on the breast. Smoked and drank (a pause in the movement of the chin)? Babies who suck at intervals for twenty minutes may not require the other breast. If the baby continues to suck without drinking (with little or no gap) will remain hungry baby.
2. Defecation-CHAPTER-(dirt, feces).
Usually on the fourth day of bowel movement is normal breast-shaped dirt. After the first three to four days, the baby should have a bowel movement increases and the first weekend to spend two to three yellow dung every day. Babies with bowel movement brown might not get enough milk, but this is not a symptom that can be trusted. In addition, a baby did not defecate for 20 days or more. During the baby’s healthy and natural form of stool that is thick and / or soft, yellow, meaning the baby is not constipated.
3. Urinate (pee).

BAK babies aged two or three days may be pink or red. No, need to panic and does not mean your baby is dehydrated. In the first days of life, just by sticking a baby can drink milk either. At this time the provision of water to the bottle, cup, or use your fingers cannot fix the problem.
