I feeling my breasts are not feeding my LO as much as he needs. Does anyone know any foods/drinks/ that produce more milk?

What makes you think that? How are diapers? At least 6 a day? If so your production is fine.



If not then oatmeal, fenugreek, and drinking more water works but lets make sure there's an issue first before we create new ones.

Why do you think you don't have enough?  As long as his diaper count is where it should be, as mentioned above, you have plenty for him. Soft boobies are working boobies, so don't go based on how "full" they feel.

If baby is having at least 6 diapers a day, baby is getting plenty.

How baby acts, what you can pump, how the breasts feel, etc are not indicative of supply.

Thank you! His poops are normal. He just seems like he's getting big, and eats a lot more then he used too.

How old is he? Sounds like he's doing exactly what he's supposed to be.

Thanks for the reassurance ladies! I'm a new mom, so sometimes things just don't feel right. Thanks for letting me know he's on the right track.
