Re: 4my dayold babygirl. how can i make the milk come in fas
Congratulations on your baby!
Just keep nursing, mama. That's all you need to do. Any time baby cues to nurse, nurse her. Don't try to time it. Your baby's stomach is the size of a grape and it takes very little to fill it. The substance that your baby is getting when she nurses is called colostrum and it's super-concentrated with everything your baby needs until your milk comes in. It also gets digested very quickly so your newborn might seem like she wants to eat all the time. That's perfectly normal. When she acts like she wants to eat- feed her. An average, just to give you an idea, is every 1.5-2 hours, but that is from beginning of session to beginning of session and a session and if a nursing session takes 45 minutes (again, normal) that means you're only getting a 30 min break. NORMAL. Just go ahead and adjust to the idea that for the next couple of weeks this is pretty much all you're going to be doing.
It is normal to take a few days for your milk to come in and there is no reason to worry or supplement with anything. Just keep nursing. The more you nurse, the more signals your body is getting that say, 'time to get the milk flowing!'
Here's a great article about getting started nursing your newborn.
“We are not put on earth for ourselves, but are placed here for each other. If you are there always for others, then in time of need, someone will be there for you.”
