- What does intuition tell us? It is worth listening to yourself and observing the child instead of suggesting the opinion of people who see the child fleetingly.
- Is the baby happy after feeding?
- Do you feed your baby at least 8 times a day in the first month of life? Usually, this number of feeds is a minimum because of the small stomach of the child.
- Do we feel that the child is sucking effectively?, and we lose milk from our breasts (with time during breastfeeding this can be easily assessed)?
- Does the newborn sleep 1-2 hours between feeding?
- How often does the child urinate? Diapers should be wet 6 to 8 times a day. Then you can be sure that your child receives enough fluid.
- How many times has a bowel movement? It is worth remembering that in the first days an infant can poop up to 10 times a day to give it back once a day after a few weeks. This pattern can change a lot.
- Has your child reached birth weight? Most often this is possible in the second week of life. Immediately after delivery, the baby gives away fluids, meconium and thus lose weight. They are signed out with a lower weight than on the day of delivery. In the third week they usually gain weight.
