First of all I want to say how great these forums are! I have had great feedback and help which has helped me continue to nurse my little girl..thank you!!
My little one is 10 weeks old and lately has been nursing 5-15 minutes on one side per feeding. She nurses longer before falling asleep at night around 10pm..but I think it's due to comfort nursing as well. She usually nurses for longer periods of time if she is falling asleep at the breast. Should I be concerned if she only nurses for 5 minutes for a feeding? I know I have oversupply and overactive letdown so I don't know if she is getting a lot in the 5 minutes thats why? She pulls off and I try and re-latch her but she turns her head and is not interested as if she is done. If I keep trying to offer her the breast she starts to get fussy and sometimes clamps down. I'll wait a few minutes than offer again and sometimes she takes it and nurses for another few minutes than pulls off. She seems fine until the next feeding 2-3 hours later and has enough wet and poopy diapers. Should I be concerned at all? Or be thankful that I have a fast eater?
Oh and it's been difficult lately to read her hunger cues as she is always sucking on her hands/fingers lately!!! Any suggestions?
