Q1. Insufficient milk… my son is 2.5 month. .. feeling worried
There are so many possible reasons –
- Sore nipples
- Giving formula milk which reduces the time on which baby is on breast feed
- Tying to feed at regular interval rather than when demanded by baby.
Let your baby feed on demand, as often and for as long as he/she wants. Always allow him/her to finish the first breast before offering him the second. Try to pump remaining milk after feed, it will increase milk supply.
