    Default New to Breastfeeding

    Hiya I am new to breastfeeding - Tyler was born on 13th Dec. I failed the previous 3 times, but touch wood - so far so good. I was just wondering if Tyler is having too many dirty nappies....................... He feeds every 3-4 hours but has probably twice the amount of dirty nappies and they are runny, yellow in colour. Is this normal?
    Any advice very much appreciated,
    Many Thanks
    Nat

    runny and yellow are all normal. I would say as long as he is having the minimum amounts of wets/dirties then thats whats important. He is apparently getting enough in to cause him to go. Much luck this time around

    heres a link to tell if your baby is getting the milk they need.
    as baby gets older he will start to poop less often.
