When did your baby start nursing more quickly?

My almost 6 week old takes about 20-25mins to finish the first breast and usually only nurses for about 10-15mins on the second (my guess is she gets full before finishing it). I was just wondering when your baby started nursing more quickly?

  • About three months. Actually, you're lucky compared to me... mine never came off the breast at that age!

  • Mine never did. It was always about an hour long endeavor.

  • That's really good, Honestly mine would take atleast an 1 hour on my breast. So I think that it's quick already.

  • My first always nursed 45 min to an hour. Second was always 20 to 25 mins and my third anywhere from 15 to 25 mins.
