Is Newborn Getting Enough Milk

Perform following checks to find if the newborn is getting enough milk to stay healthy

 Baby feeding is at least six to eight times each day. Eight times is must in the first two to three months. With growing months, when the quantity of milk feed increases continues, sleeping time increases, feeding with more quantity of milk will be reduced to six times. To make counting of feeds easy have a set of six or eight milk feeding bottles. In a day all bottles should be due for the cleaning. This applies in case of non-breast feeding.
If the baby looks content, happy, sleep after taking feedings, then he/she is getting tummy full feed.
As soon as you have finished feeding your baby, give the bottle a quick rinse out in the sink for deep cleaning later on.
It is always good to feed the baby with the mothers’ breast milk unless advised otherwise by your doctor. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends breast milk as the best nutrition for infants. Babies should be breastfed exclusively for the first six months, according to the AAP. After other foods have been introduced, the AAP encourages mothers to continue to breastfeed until baby is at least a year old,
But this is sometimes difficult for working mothers. In such case discuss with your doctor and have a combination of formula milk and breast milk.
Alcohol is a no-no for women who breastfeed because they pass on tiny amounts of it to their babies.

Wetting 8 to 10 diapers each day.
Sometimes it is difficult to check if the baby is wet or not when using super absorbent diapers. The easy way out is to put a small piece of toilet tissue paper in the diaper. One can easily find out if the baby has been wet.

Weight gain should be always positive and it may be half to one ounce per day. Best is to measure after a gap of three days, to check the increase in weight.
