i tried breastfeeding my son, but i only made it about 2 months. He wasn't gaining enough weight. I think that my milk supply was low. He wanted to eat every 2 hours and i tried. I'm now pregnant again and would like to try breastfeeding again. I want to be able to breastfeed the baby for about 6 months or so. How can I make sure to get a full milk supply?

By nursing on demand, as often as baby wants. Never time the feedings.

Every two hours is normal. So is more frequent nursing...mine nursed nonstop in the first weeks.

Count dipes. 6-8 per day means baby is getting enough.

Pick up a copy of Janet Tamaro's "So That's What They're For" for lots of great info that will help you succeed.
