It typically starts around day 2-3 but gets fewer and further between as baby grows. A lot of new moms automatically assume that they are not producing enough milk if baby seems hungry so soon after nursing. This is not always the case. If baby is producing plenty of wet and dirty diapers and gaining weight, then you are doing just fine. The first few weeks with my second, I just decided to resign myself to the couch to nurse constantly. My mother (who did not breastfeed) and my MIL who is a nurse and should know better tried to convince me that a baby never eats that often. Well, they can and some do. If you are educated upfront, then the reality is much easier to deal with once it hits.
