    Took Declan to the birth center for his 1 weeks visit

    They weighed him before and after nursing. I only nursed on one side for maybe 15 minutes, he was barely awake... and he got 4.5 ozs . I guess I'm making plenty of milk! Everything else looks great . He's also almost back to his birth weight .

    So will your supply go down or will he just do one side at a time? I didn't even know a baby that young could fit that in his stomach. This sounds so crazy to me because all I ever hear is women not making enough milk.

    This makes me want to go to the BF store in town and weigh Asher before and after.

    It'll regulate itself according to his demand. Sometimes he eats from both sides, sometimes he doesn't. At this age feeding from 1 side at a time is pretty common.

    Sometimes Asher still just eats from one side. I know he isn't getting full though because he wants to eat in an hour and a half instead of three hours. I think he is a snacker.

    Declan averages roughly every 2 hours, sometimes 1.5 and like once a day he goes 3 or so.
