Are two minute nursing sessions long enough for my baby?

I nurse my baby for two minutes at a time.


Answer by  benjiross (993)

two minutes is too short a time. You need to feed your baby for 10-20 minutes at least. The hindmilk that comes later has most of the calories.

No, it is not long enough. You should let the baby nurse until it stops. Then you will know baby has had enough milk.

Babies will let you know when they are hungry! If your baby tends to fall asleep or just not interested after 2 minutes, then it should be fine.

How many times in a 24 hour period is what I would like to know. If you are getting plenty of wet diapers and baby does not appear hungry, yes

Yes, if your baby seems satisfied with a short nursing session that should be fine. You know your baby best.
