Hi everyone- I appreciate this site so much and thank you in advance for any replies!
I am beginning to be concerned that my 3 month old is not getting enough to eat. She usually eats every 2 hours, but only feeds for about 5 minutes, and usually only on one breast. Sometimes I am able to get her to go a couple more minutes on the other breast, but usually she'll begin to squirm and fuss if I even attempt to latch her on again.
She's gaining weight very well - she was born at 5 lb, 8 oz, and now at 13 weeks is up to about 11.5 pounds. She has plenty of wet diapers daily and at least 2 dirty diapers. She seems happy after she eats and sleeps well. Is it possible that she is just such an efficient feeder that she's able to get what she needs in only 5 minutes? It just doesn't seem possible, and I'm beginning to wonder if I should start feeding her expressed breast milk in a bottle so I can gauge exactly how much she's getting. Has anyone had any similar experiences with short feedings?
