My 9-week-old son typically nurses for 15-20 minutes (we usually only do one breast per feeding). In the past few days, he's only wanted to eat for 5-10 minutes and it's freaking me out! Some feedings are barely lasting more than 5 minutes!
He will nurse fine until he gets to the 5-10 minute mark and then he starts fussing and crying, pulling off, clawing at my breast or his face, etc. I try to relatch him and he will open his mouth and take the nipple but after a suck or two he'll do the same again. That is well past my initial letdown, so I don't think it's related to that. I thought maybe he was frustrated that the flow of milk slowed, but offering the second breast doesn't help. He also doesn't need to burp.
I'm so worried that he's not getting enough to eat!
