Many moms wonder: 'Is my baby getting enough breast milk?' Many new breastfeeding moms wonder if they are feeding their babies enough milk. They want to make sure their little one is getting all the nourishment needed, but can't exactly SEE how much milk their baby's had. Research tells us that exclusively breastfed babies take in an average of 25 oz per day between the ages of 1 month and 6 months. Of course, different babies take in different amounts of milk: a typical range of milk intakes is 19-30 oz per day. Here are some surefire signs that your breastfeeding babe is getting enough nourishment: After a feeding, your baby seems relaxed and satisfied. Your breasts feel softer after nursing, because your baby's emptied some of the milk that made them engorged. After gaining back the weight that babies typically lose during their first week, a baby should wet between 6 to 12 diapers a day, and have bowel movements at least three times a day in the first month. After all, some of what goes in, must come out, and this gives a reasonable gauge of how much milk the baby is getting. Also, if the baby is satisfied, he or she will be calm. A fussy baby can be a sign of being hungry. Some signs that you're baby is NOT getting enough: your breasts don't feel softer after feeding, your baby has urine that's very dark in color, or has small, dark poops after her first week, your baby begins to lose weight, is very fussy and/or lethargic, and/or wets fewer than 5 diapers a day. If you notice any of these symptoms, be safe and speak with your pediatrician to make sure your baby isn't dehydrated or failing to thrive.
