How to Tell That Your Breastfed Baby is Thriving
At first thought, breastfeeding seems like it should be a breeze; the most natural thing in the world. After Baby is born, you might find that it’s a more time consuming job than you thought it would be.
It can seem irritating at times to have to nurse so frequently (little tummies only hold a little milk!), but it can be an unforeseen gift in giving you the time you need to sit down and rest.
Breastfeeding is possibly the first way we second guess ourselves as new moms; wondering if Baby is getting enough. Each baby is different, with needs as unique as they are. Some babies will take forever to get their fill. Others will eat quickly and be done. Take each one as they come, embracing the differences.
