Re: Only Nursing 5 min at a time?
It's not just somewhat normal. It's totally normal! Many babies prefer frequent, short nursing sessions to infrequent "meals", and by 5 months they can often get all they need in just 5 minutes. Frequency often jumps up when baby starts to teeth, and at 5 months most babies are at least pre-teething. Just do what you can to roll with it- it's normal and it's probably just a stage. If it's interfering with your evenings, you might want to switch up your routine a bit. I always struggled with dinner prep- it's hard to chop up chicken when you have a baby who wants to be latched on at the same time. So I switched to doing most of my dinner prep during the morning/early afternoon. That way I could just throw it in the pot and serve it, instead of having to prep and cook simultaneously.
