At least 10 min on the first side. If the baby is falling asleep unwrap the baby and have as much skin to skin contact as possible. If you are still at the hospital you might put the sheet or blanket over the baby, at home you may be able to not have any blanket at all. Swaddled and warm babies fall asleep more.

I agree with the not switching if your milk is in. This is a nb so I was assuming mature milk wasn't in. If your milk is in then you don't want to switch until the baby has had a long time on the first breast. It's called finish the first breast first. The next feeding start with the other breast.
