Giving your baby every opportunity to suckle at your breast
The more you breastfeed your baby, the more milk you make.
Newborn babies have small stomachs, about the size of their fist, so they don’t eat much at one time.
After a few days, you will start to make larger amounts of milk.
After the first few days, your breasts will feel full and firm. Then after a few weeks, your breasts will start to feel softer and not as full. This is normal; your milk supply is adjusting to your baby’s needs. Your milk has NOT gone away.
Using formula, even a small amount, will reduce the amount of milk you make.
Delay pacifier use until one month of age to ensure breastfeeding is going well.
