How do I know my breastfed baby is getting enough?

Mother breastfeeding her child

Here's how…

  • I keep my baby skin-to-skin.
  • I know my baby's early hunger cues.
  • My baby is latched well at the breast.
  • I hear my baby swallowing.
  • I do breast compressions.
  • My baby has enough wet and dirty diapers.
  • I talked with a public health nurse about breastfeeding.
