i think baby (4 wks) is in a growth spurt and of course it has me doubting my milk supply. i will take her to the doctor on monday to see how her weight is. at night i let her sleep on my chest. she's up every two hours to eat. but now i worry that my supply is low because she's putting pressure on my breasts all night. can this be?

also, she's sucks her hands shortly after eating. i know vigorous sucking means she's hungry but can some sucking also mean she's just soothing herself to sleeP? i'm so nervous she's not getting enough milk!!

last two days i've taken milkmaid tea just as a boost.

my babe slept on my chest for his first several weeks & i did not notice it affecting my milk supply. if she's feeding every 2 hours & is not fussing/crying all the time, then she is probaby fine! have confidence that your breasts are doing their job
