How much milk do I express for my baby?

2 days ago
It can be confusing trying to figure out how much expressed milk to leave for your baby if you are away from them.
In exclusively breastfed babies, milk intake increases quickly during the first few weeks of life, then stays about the same between one and six months (though it likely increases short term during growth spurts).

Have you ever been told to stop breastfeeding to take a medication? Unfortunately this is not uncommon. The good news is that MOST medications are compatible with breastfeeding, and for those few medications that are a safety issue there are usually acceptable substitutions. Although mothers are frequently told they need to stop breastfeeding (temporarily or permanently) to take a medication, this is rarely necessary.

The good news is most breastfeeding mothers can drink caffeine in moderation, yay!!
