    per sitting? i've been giving her about 40 minutes (20 on each, or so i try). recently, she seems satisfied after 30 minutes. are they able to eat faster as they get older?

    Yes! Their tummy gets bigger and they also learn to suck better-faster making your feeding times shorter.
    Giovanni would spend 40+ minutes eating too. Now we do 15 up to 30.

    They do get a lot better & faster as they get old. David was doing the same- 20 on each side- but now he chugs down in about 3 to 5 min. on each side!

    Yes they get MUCH faster. Newborns do tend to nurse fall asleep nurse again,etc.

    Amelia is 4 months and nurses only 1 side now and about 10 mins I'd say, unless it's the evening and she's getting fussy, then she'll nurse and nurse and then crash out.
