There is no freedom of choice for humans,
if it has been taken away from them at the beginning.
Breast-feeding is not a choice,
but an obligation to the choice.
Give your child the freedom of choice

Getting enough milk?

How will I know if my baby is getting enough milk?

If your baby is suckling well, feeding 8-12 times per 24 hours, emptying each breast, seems happy, healthy and content, is active and alert when awake and is content after a feed, he is almost certainly getting enough milk. Another good sign is around 8 wet nappies every 24 hours. If you're worried, ask your midwife or health visitor to make sure all is well. You can also take him to the local clinic to be weighed.
