My dd is 11 weeks old. She used to be able to feed for about 20 mins on one side per feed.
She now usually only feeds for 10 mins. Sometimes, she still feeds for 20 mins but usually 10. This started happening a couple of weeks ago.
Does this mean that she is just becoming a more efficient eater?
Also, DD has started waking up more frequently in the evenings. She used to only wake up once (from 11pm) but in the past week she has woken up more often. I thought it was probably due to her being thirsty as it is so horrendously hot but someone told me that the feed I give her at 10.30 - my milk supply could me low. Is this possible? Seems to be enough milk for DD.

she is getting more efficient. they definelty feed more when it is so hot, they night feed to increase your supply, it's nature i'm afraid, my midwife told me to eat a yoghurt in late evening to make sure i was passing on goodness.

I wish she would day feed to increase supply! What with the heat and less sleep, I am super grouchy!
