Whether it's your first time or you’ve done it all before, no one can predict what breastfeeding will be like.
if you express milk do you need to wait a while for the breast to 'fill up' again before bf baby?or can you put them on straight away?just feel a bit empty at the moment!thanks
no, you can put baby on straight away
Yes, straight on is fine. BFing is supply and demand. The breast makes milk continually, it doesn't fill up and wait to be emptied and a baby actively sucking encourages milk production.
