How long do your night feeds last? What do you do while baby feeds in the middle of the night? TV, Facebook or sit and stare at the wall while trying to stay awake??

I'm usually on my phone, sometimes I drift back to sleep. They last anywhere from 10 minutes to over an hour.

20 - 30 minutes. I usually have the television on. There are times we need to walk the house to get back to sleep. Othertimes I fall asleep with her in my arms which could end up in a 2 hour feed

I typically fall asleep, as she nurses for over an hour normally. Honestly, we usually end up spending the remainder of the night on the couch, her sleeping on my chest. As soon as I put her down in her crib she wakes up and starts crying, so it's just easier to cut to the chase and sleep on the couch with her.

about 30 minutes. I change her diaper before I feed her to wake her up a little bit, otherwise she will fall asleep on the boob and just wake up in 20 minutes to feed again. She normally passes out right after feeding, but I will watch crime documentaries on tv while she feeds.

With Alex I had a nice system with the recliner and the boppy pillow. I just got into a position where he could nurse and I could hold him securely and I fell asleep. I admit it. I purposefully fell asleep. When he got older I took him into bed with me and nursed him in my sleep then too.

Sometimes this backfired and in the morning I would have one very flat and empty boob and one very large, hard, and trigger happy boob.

Ours are anywhere from 15-45min. She usually falls right back to sleep afterward. I usually play on my phone or, occasionally, I'll watch tv but I try to keep the background noise to a minimum.

I will admit that when I'm too tired to keep my eyes open, I will just lay in bed and nurse her on my side while I go back to sleep. Sometimes this backfires and I wake up with a puddle underneath me lol.

Henry nurses anywhere from 15-45 minutes at night. We've got him in the pack and play next to the bed so i just nurse him sitting up in bed and stare at the wall. Because of his tongue tie right now I have to use two hands to keep him latched the whole time so i can't even play on my phone on FB
