Many mums wonder how they can know if their baby is full after a feed. Thomson Medical Centre helps to answer.

How do I know if my baby is full after each feed?

  • You will know that your baby is full when your baby appears satisfied and settled after the feed.
  • Breasts should also not feel hard after breastfeeding.
  • A well-hydrated baby (after 4 days old) will also wet about 6 to 8 diapers each day.
  • Bowel movement will appear yellowish and watery. Baby should also return to birth weight by the time he/she is 7 to 10 days old.
  • Subsequent weight gain is approximately 150g to 200g per week.
