It can take up to 4-6 weeks for your milk supply to be established. The below may help to develop natural breastfeeding patterns:
- Allow your baby to feed as often as they like day or night.
- Feed 8-12 times within 24 hours to support baby's needs.
- Some sleepy babies may need to be woken up for feeds.
- Offer both breasts each feed, but allow the baby to finish the first breast before offering the second.
