Re: Length of Feed - Need affirmation pl
Sounds good to me! The length of a feeding varies a lot from baby to baby, especially in the newborn period. As long as diaper output is good and nursing feels good, there's no reason to worry about unusually short or unusually long feedings. It sounds like you probably have a very abundant supply, which would explain why your baby only requires one breast at a feeding, why he feeds so quickly (when a mom has a ton of milk, it tends to come out very fast), and why your baby is sometimes a bit gassy (fast letdowns of milk can mean baby gulps in a lot of air, and oversupply can sometimes lead to the baby consuming a lot of lactose-rich foremilk, which can cause gassiness). You might want to try feeding in a more reclined position. Gravity can slow milk flow, making feedings a little less challenging for the baby, and potentially leading to less air intake.
