Families often stop breastfeeding because they think that the baby is not getting enough milk when really everything is going well.
To build your confidence, learn more about normal feeding patterns and how to tell that your baby is getting enough breastmilk.
Your baby may be showing signs that he is getting plenty of milk but he may remain restless and fussy when not at the breast. This does not mean that he is still hungry. Comfort and reassure your fussy baby by holding him skin-to-skin and providing other comfort measures.
If you are concerned that your baby may not be breastfeeding well, help is available in your community.
