In brief: Count wet diapers
Almost every new mother questions if she is feeding her baby enough milk.
Since breasts don't come with gauges we must confirm adequacy by secondary measures: is baby making more than 3-4 wet diapers per day? Is baby satisfied after a feeding? Is there adequate weight gain during the well baby checkups? While baby is feeding at one breast is the other leaking? Does baby sleep well after feeding?

In brief: Useful cues include
Several cues that will help you determine if your milk production is adequate include; a sense of fullness of the breast which feels lighter after feeds, as much as 6 wet diapers and at least 4 seedy stools in a day, hearing baby swallow milk and seeing some milk around mouth during feeds, loss of hunger cues after baby has fed and lastly age appropriate weight gain are simple cues.
