Once your baby is delivered, the time is noted as the birth time. At 1 minute old and at 5 minutes old baby will be scored by a nurse or physician. This is known as the Apgar scores. The test is named after the creator, Virginia Apgar, these scores help the doctors evaluate the baby’s general condition.

This is the most common breastfeeding question I’m asked.
Not being able to see exactly how many milliliters or ounces baby is taking in during a feeding makes many parents worry that they aren’t getting enough to eat. Babies cry often and many assume the baby is hungry and they’re crying because they aren’t getting enough breast milk.
If baby is latching to your breast, transferring milk and making enough wet and dirty diapers then baby is feeding enough.
