The simplest way is observe your child. It is believed that breast milk should be enough for him for about three hours, the rest of the time the child first months of life is mostly sleeping. This is perfect, but we all know about colic, baby tummy and other trouble.
Suspected shortage of milk can be too frequent sucking of the breast, a constant bad dream of the child and his hungry cries. A good test in this case can serve as a "wet diaper", they will help for sure to learn, whether enough child breast milk.
To do this you during the day, it is not necessary for the child to wear diapers, and just start counting his wet diapers. Normally, this figure should be greater than 12, usually infants are written at 15-17 times a day. While the dirty diapers too, should be decent - about 4-7 pieces in under two months.
If you counted more than 6 but less than 12 diapers, be sure to consult a specialist on breastfeeding. He will see the correctness of applying the crumbs to the breast and will give recommendations for a higher production of milk. If the cradle is less than 6 is very dangerous for the life of the child, immediately consult your doctor.
Another way to understand if you have enough milk is weighed. You'll need accurate scales. Several times a day to weigh the baby before and after feeding. So you will be able to determine the average amount of milkthat he eats per feeding. Normal rate is one-fifth the body weight of the child.
In General, about health is best reflected monthly weight gain. Minimum of 125 grams per week, respectively, 500 grams per month. The average numbers range around 800 grams. It does not have to be on friends mothers. Every child is gaining weight individually, each with its own Constitution and growth rate. Keep this in mind and do not worry once again. As in the first months of life your baby need a calm and confident mother.
