Is my milk supply increasing?
There are several signs that a milk supply is increasing. The mother’s breasts may feel fuller and heavier and leak more. They may produce more milk when measured using expression and the baby may need less milk supplement. Mothers should these changes within a few weeks if they are taking steps to increase their milk supply. If there is no increase in supply by three weeks, it is unlikely any more effort will increase the supply. If any changes are made to the baby’s feeding patterns or amount of milk supplement, babies should be closely followed by their health-care providers to monitor their growth.
