    Sounds perfect. Breastfeeding requires that we relax about how much milk they are actually getting and just watch the baby. Sounds like that's what you are doing and that everything is working out perfectly. A good way to double check is to ask, "How many wet diapers?" Any signs of dehydration are bad. If he seems hydrated, he's getting enough milk.

    The only thing you can do is A) trust your body and B) count the # of wet/dirty dipes. Sounds like you're doing great!!

    if baby looks happy and wets 5-6 diapers with pee it´s ok.....trust yourself and don´t give anymore formula. if your breasts fill full then it´s great!! but if they don´t fill full that is also great....THERE IS ALWAYS MILK......
    GOOD LUCK!!

    congrats. You are doing awesome. Sounds like your supply is regulating during the evening. Give it a couple of days and the engorgement should fade. You want comfy breasts. Your body is doing its job. Good luck and welcome...fill us in too. Hope all is good
