My daughter is 6 weeks and lately she buses for about 5 mins on each breast and then she's done and eventually just goes to sleep. I was wondering if it's normal since she use to eat for about 15 mins on each breast. She still eats every two to three hours still,, every four hours throughout the night .

If diapers are good, she's fine. Babies learn to be more efficient at the breast and can get the milk quicker.

Her diapers still seem to be going good... Not as many poopy diapers but still enough..:. She's not sick either so I was just worried she wasn't eating enough...

If she wasn't eating enough, she wouldn't be wetting enough. When you start to wonder again, remember what goes in, must come out. If it is coming out, it HAS to be going in.

Ther diapers are forever your guide. This is one of the reasons we tell expectant moms to destroy their timepieces. In the early days they aggravae you when baby's on the breast for hours, and at about this stage or a little later you start worrying when they're nursing for only minutes.

BOTH extremes are normal. Indeed, soon enough baby will be master of the 30-seond driveby!

Don't look at the clock. It will merely make you nuts.

Thank you for the advice!!! My pediatrician reassured me Im doing great. At her two week check-up she weighed 8 pounds 4 ounces... At her six week appointment on Monday she weighed 10 pounds 8 ounces!!!
