It was for my dd although I had to be careful that I was making sure she was getting enough in one go so she wasn't constantly topping up, as it effected her wind and sleeps. In the early days I had to stimulate her throughout her feeds to keep her awake long enough to have a good suckle. I aimed for 15 minutes and didn't worry about both sides for a while. She would last about 2 hours. If she didn't it was more like an hour to 1.5 till the next feed. Some days they will feed much more regularly in order to increase supply around growth spurts etc.
congrats on your baby. Enjoy!
