Well his horrific (in my book anyway!) 17 week growth spurt seems to be easing after a week of feeding 2 hourly day and night but now he only seems to feed for 8 or 9 minutes at a time - was previously about 20-30 minutes. Am I to assume that I now have sooooh much milk that he's getting plenty in that time or could something else be going on? My boobs do feel far fuller now than before the spurt!

Am no expert but I attend La Leche League meetings and have heard the leaders say that this is perfectly normal. My DS2 is 4 months old and is also taking much less time to feed than before - bf seems so much easier somehow smile. I suppose it's the payback for all the hours spent in the beginning bum attached to sofa.
