Breastfeeding

BF through growth spurts

My DS went through a growth spurt around the 3 wk mark where he was eating significantly more for about 2-3 days. I feel like now my breasts are "emptier" at the start of each feeding in the days after than they were before. Thoughts on how these growth spurts / feeding frenzies should be affecting my milk supply? Or not?

Re: BF through growth spurts

  • If anything growth spurts should increase your supply. But supply also starts to regulate and your breasts won't feel engorged anymore as your body learns how much your LO needs to eat.
