Undersupply is one of the most common worries during breastfeeding. Luckily for you, it's mostly about supply & demand—with a dash of intuition.

What you'll learn

Worrying about if you have enough breastmilk is an incredibly common occurrence. Chances are, the answer is yes. If your baby is growing and having enough wet diapers, you are likely in good shape. That said, the best thing to do is call a lactation consultant if you are concerned—even if it is to be told your supply is enough.

That said, there are plenty of ways to supplement while continuing your breastfeeding journey if that's your goal.
