All kinds of variations are normal. But you might want to get him checked for tongue tie , to see if it's giving him any trouble with milk transference.

Depends on the age and time of day. Anywhere from 5 mins to over an hour.

10 minutes on one breast and another 10 minutes on the other was all my DS1 needed. I am planning on breastfeeding when DS2 comes in September. I don't know how long he'll breast feed though.

hah hah, and the 2 hours is usually when you have somewhere to be in an hour and the 5 minutes is when you're trying to nap with the baby.

Lately she's been nursing for hours at a time. She has croup and a really red throat (the pedi even checked her for strep it looked so bad).
During the day she will nurse for 5-10 minutes at a time. Then at night she's "plug in" all night. She's 11months old.
