I've read on several threads that baby becomes a more efficient feeder and feed times will reduce. Can anyone advise what age this happens at? My 8 week old DD still taking about 45mins-1 hour to feed.

I found that both my girls started to feed for shorter times around 3-4 months. DD2 is 11 months and often finished a feed in under ten minutes.

about 4 months I think. Suddenly feeds only took about 10 mins. Unfortunately also coincides with baby starting to be nosey about what's going on around them!

I found this happened about 4 months too. Although night feeds still seem to take about 30mins.hmm
