My baby is now 2 months old (1 month adjusted) & doing great thanks in large part to the awesome support I've gotten here! Yay! We had her baby naming this past weekend, and she nursed through most of it.
Now I'm wondering when/if things become more "efficient". She's still going back & forth twice (we call it "taking 4 boobs" around here). I let her finish each breast fully, but I don't have an over-abundant supply, and she keeps coming back wanting more. It takes about an hour for her to finish (in fact she rarely seems completely sated, I just usually stop nursing her after 4 boobs worth) and she nurses about every 2 hours. This is really fine & totally worth it if this is just how she rolls, but...in your collective experience, might this speed up as she gets older? Please say yes.
(A funny little story as an aside: my friend's four-year-old saw me pull-up my shirt to nurse, and she did a double take. She asked "what are you doing?" I said "feeding the baby." She said that when she was a baby she ate a bottle; I said that some babies eat from a bottle and some babies eat from their mommies. She seems satisfied with that answer. Later in the day my friend caught her hitching up her shirt to feed her baby doll. She was feeding her baby doll from her belly button, but she pretty much had the right idea. My friend was aghast, but I thought it was hilarious.)
