    how often is the baby nursing?
    what are his we diapars like and poops?
    can you take the baby to bed and just nurse?
    3 months is a great time for growth, and most babies want to nurse more when they are growing.
    As long as he's having 5-6 realy wets and growing 6 oz a week average you know he is getting the milk he needs

    My baby will be 3 months old on Oct 6th and I am going through the same issue. I feel my milk supply is down. I have been trying to nurse none stop but It doesn't seem to help. I think he may be going through a growth spurt.
