Boob Scoop

Boob Scoop: When it comes to breastfeeding, watching for milk transfer is more important than keeping track of how many minutes a baby is at the breast. Like adults, babies vary in how long they take to complete a meal. So put aside your watch and instead watch your baby. Swallowing is signaled when the throat drops like a bull frog and oftentimes when you hear an audible gulping sound.
