Each Baby is Different - Breastfeeding times

You'd be surprised how efficient many babies are. Some babies get all they could want or need in just a few minutes - Mason usually only nursed for 3-5 minutes, whereas Audrey would nurse for 20 minutes+ each time she nursed. Each baby is different and as long as they are gaining weight, I wouldn't worry too much about the time they spend breastfeeding.

    It is amazing how different each one is. Good advice.

    obsessed with babywearing, cloth diapering, and breastfeeding (but not judgmental about those that aren't). I'm a SAHM that works. Loves cupcakes, kittens, and glitter; hates spiders, housework and pessimism.
