  • That's perfectly normal. His tummy is getting bigger everyday. You'll definitely be able to keep up, we produce milk on demand

  • Yeah, no reason to worry about quantities. Don't even worry about how often he eats -- like if your doc says "every 2 hours" you could risk getting a complex like I did... my girl would sleep through a couple of feedings and then eat like every 45 minutes. She still at 6 months eats every hour. Your supply will meet the demand, provided that you nurse on demand.
