I have a 2.5 wk old LO and he feeds for a very long time. If I let him, each feeding could go over an hour. He does seem to be actively sucking for a good portion of the time, though, and because I'm on a nipple shield, I feel like I should keep him on longer since it might take him a while to get everything out. Today at the doctor, my pediatrician suggested that I only feed my DS on one side, assuming that he can get enough from one solid (25 minute) feeding on one side. I tried that today, but then he woke up from napping on his own after about and hour and 15 minutes, where normally, he will go for 2+ hours on his own. (Sometimes, I have woken him up during the day even so that he can get more feedings in during the day.) So now, of course, I'm paranoid that the one side wasn't enough. I just tried again and then pumped the side I didn't feed on. I got about 1.75 oz. Even though I know that what I pump doesn't necessarily equate to what my LO gets in a feeding, I'm wondering if less than 2 oz is a normal amount for one feeding for a 2-3 wk old infant. Does anyone know about how much I should be aiming for at each feeding if I'm feeding 9-10 times per day/night? I also wonder this because I am going to have to have grandparents give him a bottle of EBM this weekend when my DH and I attend a wedding. Sorry so long. Help would be great!
