Hi Bees,
I need some insight. My 8 month-old has nursing sessions that last about 30 to 50 minutes every 3 hours. When I talk to other breastfeeding mothers with babies around my LO's age they seem to only nurse for 5 to 20 minutes. The few times that my LO does have short feedings I feel worried because my breasts still feel full. I don't know if he is nursing for comfort or if he just is a slow nurser. He usually falls asleep during each nursing session, so I don't know if that's why he's so slow. He currently weights 18lbs and 10 ounces. Does anyone have a LO similar to mine? Is this normal for some babies? Should I bring it up to LO's pediatrician? Any info anyone may have I would greatly appreciate. Thanks.
