so yesterday i was worried cos my ds didnt give me a break. he wanted to feed all day. so my thought was he wasnt getting enough. he woke up crying not a "normal" cry for him. nothing was working. so i new right then it was gonna be one of those days. today when he woke up he was in a great mood. smiling and happy looking. i was glad. i didnt know if it was a drop in supply. but now i have a few questions:
1. if he bf just for comfort is there any other way to comfort him w/o bfing him? i tried a binky but he doesnt take it
2. when he does stay on the breast ALL day does it increase your milk supply? or does he need to be on breast all day for more then one day?
3. i drink alittle less then a gallon of water everyday im not stressed out and i usually walk ALOT (except tues and wed of this week due to being over tired) but i didnt know what would cause a lack of supply if i was lacking. i dont know if i am or not cos like i said above he was not content at all yesterday. and he does have plenty of dirty diapers but he had 'watery' poop yesterday. and when i talked to my lc she told me he would have watery poop if he wasnt getting enough hindmilk. and thats why i was wondering if he isnt getting enough. how would i go about getting my body to make more hindmilk?
thanks for reading im sorry so long.
