Re: Have no idea what Im doing.........
In a young baby, that "stuffed so full I have to pass out" food come looks exactly like satisfaction. But it's not the norm for a breastfed baby. A breastfed baby will eat what he needs and then stop. He won't eat all he needs plus a big helping of dessert (so to speak) the way he will with a bottle.
It's very normal for supply to dip in the evenings, when mama is tired and levels of prolactin (the milk-making hormone) tend to be at their lowest. But lower supply isn't low supply. If the baby is allowed to nurse-nurse-nurse through the lower supply evening, the constant demand (a.k.a. cluster feeding) will train mom's body to produce more milk during the slow flow hours.
