3 To start breastfeeding again, ask for help. You only can give your milk if you put your baby to your breast often to make milk. 1

11 Feed your baby when he/she moves his/her lips, sucks his/her hands and turns his/her head searching for the breast. Crying does not always mean hunger. 1

13 Prepare your milk stock by extracting milk at the end of every feeding and put it in the fridge in a clean bottle. At the end of the day you will have 2–3 oz. 1  
15 Your baby is ready to eat when he/she sits on his/her own, opens his/her mouth, chews and leans toward foods. Wait until 6 months to start feeding solid foods. 1 1
