Dear Momtoreuben
There are a few things you can try:
If he is gaining enough weight (170 g per week), have 5-6 wet nappies and 3-4 dirty nappies per day, your milk may be enough, although your breasts may feel softer.

You must make sure that you drink enough fluids and eat enough food - it affects milk. Ask you sister at the clinic for the jungle juice recipe. You also need to sleep enough (lol). Alternativly your doctor can perscrive Eglynol. Your baby could also be going through a growth spurt.

Good luck
