Re: Only nursing for 5 - 10 min max
Welcome to the forum!
My first thought is this: if your babysitter cannot handle frequent feedings, you need to find a different babysitter. One who is willing to respond to your baby's very normal needs and feeding routine.
As long as baby continues to have a normal amount of wet diapers, he is getting enough to eat. It is very normal for him to nurse frequently- I know "snacking" gets a bad rap from many people, but for a breastfed baby that's a totally normal and healthy eating pattern. Some people try to encourage babies to eat large amounts infrequently, but that's teaching baby to ignore his own hunger cues and eat as much as possible every time he gets a chance- not a healthy pattern to set up for the baby's future.
