I had copious amounts of milk very early on with DD2 but she still fed hourly. Her little belly was adjusting from the colostrum to milk. They get unsettled and windy as their digestive system and belly adapts. If bub is having wet nappies id be confident in your supply. We had pretty much no big sleep for days 3 - 5.
You're doing a great job, please don't pay attention to your stepmum.
Totally in love with our two beautiful little girls.

Just dealing with a bit of problems with my bleeding now so hope that settles down I lost a fair sized clot this evening and my bleeding is still dark red it's not heavy but I Hope it settles down, other than that we are doing great!

Sorry, I just saw your post this morning, I have super demanding kids this morning, and have to get to swimming lessons. But I'll be back ASAP.

Can you express a bit on that side while he feeds from the other? It's normal to have one breast that produces a bit more than the other
