My baby is now 14 weeks old and takes about 30 mins to feed. Is this normal?

I don't think there is a normal Deaby

If baby is happy and gaining weight, don't worry, he/she will get getting what they need.

It may well be normal for your baby. Some are fast feeders, some slow. Some mothers have a fast letdown, some slow. Some snack often, others have big feeds less frequently.

If your baby is happy and thriving, has wet and dirty nappies and is alert and responsive then be led by his/her needs.
