How to figure if the baby’s feeding session was a success!

In this short read, we want to give you some proven tips that will help you figure out if the baby has had a good fill.

The first check is to see if actual suckling (that is, extracting colostrum or milk from your breast), not just sucking (gumming your nipple) is going on. What you need to do is watch for a strong, steady, suck-swallow-breath pattern. 

Just notice the sides of the baby’s face. You’ll spot a steady pattern in the baby's cheek, jaw, and ear. Once the milk goes into the baby’s mouth, a gulping or swallowing sound will be heard.
