Re: 4mo. Old Pops Off After about 7-10 mins...
a 4 mo could definitely be effecient enough to be done after 7-10 minutes. or she might be distracted. i would do what you're doing: stand up and walk till she's distracted, then offer again. milk supply, if it is lower, is usually lower more like afternoons/evenings, but you could be an outlier. more likely is just that she's got something else going on. keep distrating & re-offering.
how many wet diapers per 24 hours?
drink to thirst, keeping in mind that we often don't have a good "thirst" cue (we think it's hunger, often). can't drink too much water, and nursing thirst particularly the first months is like no other. if your urine is mostly clear and not smelly, you're hydrated enough.
