Breast Milk Production: My 8-month old gets distracted while breastfeeding. How do I know if she is getting enough milk?

by ErinStieglitz on May 02, 2018

breast milk productionIt is absolutely normal for an 8-month old baby to be curious, even while breastfeeding, and doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with your breast milk production!  This means she may come off the breast to watch what is going on around her.  The good news is that babies this age are very efficient when breastfeeding and are quite capable of getting plenty of milk in 5 to 10 minutes.  Also by this age, babies are eating some solids and not solely relying on breast milk production.  If your baby seems content between feedings and is gaining weight healthily you have nothing to worry about.

Stimulate baby and keep her focused on the task at hand with our Baby Sees It® Cotton Wirefree Nursing Bra.  The inner-slight has a playful pattern for your baby to look at while she’s nursing.  This nursing bra also has the unique feature of a 3-step drop cup that allows for fluctuations in breast size.
