Breastfeeding works by matching the mother’s milk supply to the baby’s appetite.
Your baby may suddenly seem unsettled and want to feed more often for a day or two. This is quite normal and builds your milk supply.
Breasts commonly become soft at 3-6 weeks after birth, but it is important to remember that you are still producing milk, so continue to breastfeed and your milk supply will adapt to the changing needs of you and your baby.
You can expect increased milk demand around 3-4 days, 2-3 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months.
