1–4 weeks: Building your milk supply in the first month

Your breast milk supply should increase throughout the first month as you and your baby get to know each other and familiarise yourselves with breastfeeding. Find out what to expect during the first few weeks and how your milk’s composition changes. There’s also support on overcoming common difficulties, such as sore nipples, milk leakage and engorgement, and how pumping can help increase your supply if you need to.
