Re: Block Feeding Questions
How old is your baby? Depending on age, it may be perfectly normal to nurse for that long.
Can I ask why you are block feeding? Most moms block feed to help combat oversupply. In fact, the point of block feeding is to reduce your supply by leaving one side full, thereby sending your body the signal to make less milk. If you are not wanting to reduce your supply, you should not block feed.
ETA: Your breast is never completely empty. Your body is always making milk. Even during nursing it will be making milk. You can typically tell when baby is done nursing, though, by watching their sucking pattern. If their tongue goes still and just flutters every once in a while or they break suction, they are probably done.
