Hi, just wondered how long it takes to breast feed your 10 month old. My DS is down to 3 feeds a day, but he still takes about 45 mins to feed. Others I know are much quicker like 15 mins. Still have issues with eating and poor weight gain, my DH keeps thinking I'm over feeding with the milk so not eating. I always thought a full milk feed is when they come off and want no more. Not based on how long it takes????
It does take as long as it takes and I wouldn't worry. My DD was feeding in about 10 minutes, often less at that age, but was having a million feeds a day still. In fact, until my milk dried up due to pregnancy (and she is still dry nursing, just at bedtime mainly though) she was still feeding 5 or 6 times a day at 22 months.
I'm not sure what the eating/weight gain issues are, but if your DS seems well in himself and healthy, with no health issues, I would personally ditch the scales and relax about eating if you can. I never had any of my DC weighed after a few months old.
Hi all, thanks for your posts. I guess I shouldn't worry. With regards to his eating, even I don't know what the issues are. He'll have a few spoons and refuse any more. Not put on any weight at all over last 3 months. I'll check for a tongue tie cloverer x
