Re: 5 week old will only eat for 4 mins
Welcome mama, and congrats on the new baby! If you can pump out 2 oz in 1 minute, then you probably have a very abundant milk supply and a very rapid letdown. When a mama has those 2 things, their babies tend to become fast feeders very early on. Their babies tend to dislike nursing for comfort, because the milk comes out so fast and there's so much of it. And the babies may cough, choke, gag, unlatch frequently, and fuss at the breast because drinking from a firehose is a challenge for a tiny baby! You may want to try some reclined nursing positions, since leaning back utilizes gravity to slow milk flow.
If you are concerned about milk intake, count diapers. Good output = good input. As long as you nurse on demand and see good diaper output, there's no need for a bottle.
One thing that you probably want to be aware of is that overabundant milk supply and fast letdowns generally don't last forever. So you may reach a point in time when you no longer feel full or engorged, stop leaking, cannot pump as much milk, and when your baby feeds more frequently and requires 2 breasts if she has been taking just one. But this does not mean inadequate milk supply. It just means your supply has adjusted to meet her needs very precisely, without a lot of extra milk being made.
