  • My son would nurse for five minutes up to thirty. I was so worried about feeding him every three hours and I feel like that is why he only ate for a short period of time. My advice is to let the baby sleep and wake when he is hungry. He will be more willing to feed at the breast longer.

  • I only breastfed for the first three days with my son but it was normally for thirty minutes at a time, and unfortunately every hour. All babies are differen't. Your son might not eat as much or as often as other moms' babies but that doesn't mean there's anything wrong.
