Making Milk

I am nervous about not making enough milk. Will my body be able to provide enough for my baby?

Your body was made to breastfeed!  Your breasts start preparing to breastfeed during pregnancy. After your baby is born, when you breastfeed or pump often, this signals your breasts to fill back up. Removing milk from your breasts triggers the milk-making hormone, prolactin, which tells your breasts to keep producing. Breasts continually produce milk and are never fully empty.
