Thread: Nursing long!!!

  1. #1

    Default Nursing long!!!

    I've been back at work for three weeks now. My lo takes EBM in a bottle and I nurse when I'm home with her after work and on weekends. She's 11 weeks old and drinks about 3 to 4 oz per feeding every 3 to 4 hours with the DCp. Sometimes she only takes in 2 oz then in an hour she's sucking on her hand ferociously so my DCp gives her another 2 oz and she's content until the next feeding.

    I've noticed that when I nurse her now she tends to stay on for about 40 minutes sometimes an hour nonstop! Is this typical of a baby when they're away from mommy?

    I don't mind nursing her for that long since I just latch her on and recline and watch my favorite show. But I'm not sure if it's something I should be concerned about. Any other working bfing mommy's experiencing something similar?

    I experienced the long nursing session when I first returned to work as well. I think it passed after a couple of weeks or a month.

    Okay. I'm glad to hear it's not out of the ordinary. I enjoy that long nursing time with her anyway! Thanks for your response.
