She's nursing about 15 min on each side. She's definitely getting faster and more efficient

I pump,for eighteen minutes on each side.... And a few minutes longer if I have someone to watch the baby for me.

I'd love to hear this response from other pumpers!

She nurses for about 15 minutes and only on one side per feeding. She eats every 1.5-3 hours, or whenever she likes.

After about 6 minutes per side, she starts to get really lazy. I have to prod and tickle her to keep her awake, but I try and get her to do a few more minutes on each side. Usually end up with no more than 10 minutes per side.

Lindsay- Kinley was like that too and she's still sleepy sometimes but she's definitely gotten more alert and busy while nursing! She'll get there

I am a EPer with a double pump. I ALWAYS pump for at least 30 minutes. My rule of thumb is pump for 5 minutes after the last let down. sometimes I think I am done and I get a letdown right at the 5 minute mark so it would be 5 more minutes.

He nurses anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes. I think one of my breasts isn't producing enough. It doesn't seem as full and he falls asleep very quickly on that breast.
