Breast Feeding Rss

Hi
I'm breast feeding my 4weeks old and all is going well. Am just starting to think about everyones comments to me about how long my baby takes to feed (even though none of these people have babies themselves).
She takes an hour mostly or sometimes just over an hour. She drains one breast completely and then i offer her the other and she has probably half of that or 1/4.
How long is normal for breast feeding?
Thank you.
hi, sounds pretty normal to me, my baby would take an hour in the early days but her feeds soon were much quicker.
perhaps you could find a breastfeeding group in your local area where you could meet other mums who are also breastfeeding. you may find it very reassurring to meet with others who are going through the same things.
the Australian Breastfeeding associations website is a good place to start. its at www.breastfeeding.asn.au
