You can make all of the milk your baby needs. Holding baby skin-to-skin while in the hospital and after going home, helps you make milk. Breastfeeding your baby whenever baby is hungry and exclusively breastfeeding for the first 4-6 weeks will protect your milk supply. Learn about steps you can take directly after birth and beyond to boost your milk supply at the Droplet website. Learn more about how breastmilk is made on this WIC breastfeeding support webpage.
