How long does your DC nurse?

I was just thinking about it because DD is such a short nurser...was curious to see what others say!

My son normally nurses for 45 minutes at a time, every 2-3 hours... but then once a day / every other day, he'll nurse for a few hours straight. He is six weeks old

Re: How long does your DC nurse?

hmm the first 6ish months he was attached to the boob! LOL he was a marathon nurser ESP in the beg.

now that he is older and exploring more he pops on and off. he nurses longer if i take him in a quiet room.

DD literally nurses for 3-5 minutes and that is it, has since she was bitty. That's why I was just curious about other babies!

DS used to take quite a while...30 + minutes but now that he's older (13 months) it's much quicker. Usually between 10-20 minutes...sometimes less if he's "on the go".

Re: How long does your DC nurse?

DS from birth to 6 months was pretty much attached to the boob 24/7 and nursed for long long periods of time!!

Now at 16 months he is much more busy and I would average day nursing is 5-7 minutes, but will nurse longer at night before bed and then during the night I am not really sure how long he nurses when he wakes up now I am curious....might have to *try* and stay awake and see, that just might be too much work though lol.

I've always been sort of panicky about Presley's habit of super short nursing sessions. DS nursed for 30min, 45min, sometimes an hour at a time. So it was a huge shock when DD came along and only nursed for 5 minutes!!! LOL

NAK

dd nursed for about 20 - 30 mins every 2 hours when she was first born. You could set a watch by her. Now, at 6 months, she really nurses for about 10mins and then comfort sucks for 5 mins to an hour sometimes. Depends on how she feels I guess. I voted other

Re: How long does your DC nurse?

Amy- Sage has been like that since the begining also. When she was in NICU I was also inpatient due to a bowel resection. I had my surgery when she was 7 days old and she was stable enough to leave the NICU for short periods. 4 times a day they would bring her to me and leave her with me for about 45 minutes. I actually had to make up times that she was nursing because they were horrified that something was wrong with her since she would only nurse for 5-10 minutes. At about 2 months she dropped to 5 minutes per side max. and now at 17 months it is about 3 mintues per side except for int he morning and right befor ebed, those usually stretch to 5-6 minutes. I actually hated it when she was little because I always loved using nursing as an excuse to sit and relax
