Only if he does it less frequently, you can think about the lack of milk. Note that the expression in normal breast feeding can lead to hyperlactation, which is fraught with lactose.
Remember the cardinal rule of breastfeeding: demand creates supply. The more the child will suck milk, the more it will come next time. Sometimes a newborn it's hard to suck on an empty breast, so he can cry to throw the chest that does not trigger a natural mechanism for increasing lactation. In this situation, you should help your body by straining.
Express the Breasts from which you just sucked on a baby, after each feeding until the complete emptying. Don't worry if at first you do not succeed.

Press your fingers in the direction of the chest, as you grab the arm and then point them in the direction of the aura, pushing out the milk. Do rhythmically for a minute or two. This will start the process of milk secretion. No need to fidget for the skin and do not press on the nipple. It came to nothing lead.
