One of the best way to tell if your baby is getting enough milk is to take a look at their nappy. After the first few days your baby will be having around six wet nappies a day. Your baby’s poo will change a lot during their first week, starting off black to dark brown and then turning to a runny, mustard coloured poo. After the first couple of weeks another way to tell if your baby is getting enough milk is by monitoring their weight gain. For more information click here
