How to judge whether the baby is full ?
Standard 1: weight
Observe the baby’s body weight gain. In general, a baby will have a body weight loss after birth. About four days later, it will return to the weight at birth, and then start to grow steadily.
Within three months, the average weight gain per week is about 110g-200g, and about 600g per month. If it is a lower standard, it is 450g-600g. And the first month of weight gain, the base is from the body weight after weight loss, not the weight at birth.
Standard 2: urine volume
From the sixth day after birth, the urine volume is more than six times a day. And the color of urine is light or colorless, which means that the baby’s intake is enough. If the baby is still very dark three or four days after birth, it means that the baby’s intake of water is insufficient. From the first day of the baby’s birth urine volume, the second day twice, the third day three times, and so on until the sixth day is six urine volume.
Since the sixth day, he has urinated more than six times, which means that he has enough breast milk.
Standard 3: Stool
The defecation of the newborn is regular. From the beginning of the black sticky tire will slowly become green, brown, and then yellow. If the color of the stool is always dark, or the amount of stool is small or the frequency of defecation is small, it may be due to insufficient milk.
Although the baby has enough milk and enough water, some babies don’t have the right way of sucking milk ，without triggering the mother’s milk ejection reflex, they can’t eat the post milk with high fat and high calories. In this case, the baby may have normal urination and enough water, but the quality of breast milk is not ideal.
