    Default Efficient Nursing

    When your LO started nursing more efficiently (suddenly shorter), could you tell a difference during the session?
    i.e. harder sucking or the like

    Just curious.

    I didn't really notice a difference except when they get more efficient it typically indicates a better latch so nursing was more comfortable.

    i only noticed that he wouldn't latch/unlatch as frequently thus making the nursing time shorter.

    Nope, no changes for me either apart from the time. It really freaked me out a first, I though she was just snacking and tried offering the breast more and when she refused I was worried. Finally I read it was AOK and relaxed LOL.

    I didn't notice anything, either. Anything, that is, aside from nursing sessions going from 30+ minutes to 10, max, in the course of about four days. It freaked me out and I did the same as caymanali for awhile

    I just suddenly felt like he wasn't nursing enough, I had all this non nursing time on my hands! But he was just more efficient.
