Is baby getting enough?

If you are worried about how your baby is feeding, ask to have a breastfeeding assessment.

Breastfeeding is a learned skill for both mum and baby, and it's very common to need a bit of extra support before you both become experts.

Frequent feeding is normal when your baby is first born. Baby may feed as often as every 1 to 2 hours. After the newborn period, your baby should be feeding at least 8 times in 24 hours including during the nighttime.
