How long is your LO nursing on each side for or how long does it take them to finish a bottle?

Arthur varies. During the day he'll have a quick snack for like 5-10 minutes unless he's ready for a nap and then he'll nurse until he goes to sleep. At night he'll have several 10-15 minute sessions and then a long one until he falls asleep. Middle of the night he usually only needs 15-20 minutes until he falls back to sleep.

Payson varies from 5 minutes to 30 minutes. Longer session usually mean she is almost ready for a nap.

Grayson finishes a bottle in about 5-6 minutes. He holds his bottle now too. It is sooo nice to just hand it to him

Ok I'm glad others are eating fast. I wasn't sure if Zack's 5-10 minutes was to fast or normal. He will take around 5-10 at a normal feeding. He will take a little longer if its right before a nap or bedtime.

Yeah Morgan tends to power-nurse. Five minutes. Ten tops. If it's longer it's because she's falling asleep.

Same here. 5-10 min unless it's bed time. If Bourne is around, it's in 30 sec increments.

It's crazy that they can empty a boob that fast. Now is that both side combined or just one side? If we are using both sides he will take around 10-15.

This is just one side. I've only ever done one side per feeding.

5-10 minutes here too. If Henry is distracted then he'll just take one side.

Leona drinks her bottle in about 10 minutes. She doesn't always finish and she doesn't hold it yet at all.

Weston has quite a few 10-15 min sessions during the day. they are longer if its nap time. it takes him 45 min at night each time he wakes up. I give him one 8 ounce bottle before bed and he drinks that in about 10 mins.

I don't pay attention to this stuff. I just feed her when she's hungry, until she's done eating, and as long as she is gaining weight I don't worry
