Breast feeding my baby but breast not feeling heavy. Am I not producing enough milk?

Hi am from india I delivered my son on April 2012 I was asked to breast feed my baby right from the beginning and I did . My doubt is that my breasts never felt heavier when I nurse or even after I nurse my baby.So does that mean that am not producing enough milk to feed my baby because everyone says heavy breast means more milk production .what should I do ?please help...

Even not heavy breasts can produce enough milk to feed your baby. However, if your baby seems hun‧gry (a crying baby) you need to eat a little more — about an additional 400 to 500 calories a day — to keep up your energy. To get these extra calories, opt for nutrient-rich choices, such as a slice of whole-grain bread with a tablespoon (about 16 grams) of peanut butter, a banana or apple, and 8 ounces (about 227 grams) of fat-free yogurt. Be sure to drink frequently, preferably before you feel thirsty.
