How do I know that my baby is getting enough milk?

Babies have small tummies – only the size of a cherry when they are born! This means they will feed little, and VERY frequently in the first 6 weeks especially. Remember – responding to your babies cues will help you establish breastfeeding. Babies rarely need “extra” milk or additional feeds. Please speak to your health visitor if you are worried. The below signs reassure you that your baby IS getting enough milk.

If you are unsure or have worries about any of these, please get in touch with your health visiting team.
