How do you know your baby is getting enough breastmilk? . . Their nappy output is one of the best indications as to whether your baby is breastfeeding well. When you first have your baby every breastfeeding professional will be obsessed with their nappies! How many are they having each day? What colour are they? How heavy are they? The reason for this is that if baby is having plenty wet and dirty nappies, that’s a sure indication that they’re getting enough from the breast. . . This table will help you understand how many wet and dirty nappies your baby should be having during their first month. Their stool will change from the thick, black/brown meconium when they’re first born, to a yellow, loose, seedy consistency as your milk begins to clear out the meconium from their digestive system. This combined with a good wet nappy output is a great sign that baby is feeding well at the breast. If your baby is not having as many wet or dirty nappies as expected, discuss this with a healthcare professional such as your Midwife, Health Visitor or an IBCLC who will watch a feed and assess positioning, attachment and how often your baby swallows during the feed.
