I'm exclusively BFing my 5 week old baby.
In the past week, her feeding time at each breast suddenly decreased. She used to take 10 - 15min at each breast, for a total feeding time of around half an hour at a time.
Now she is done in 5 minutes +/- per breast.
I was anticipating longer nursing since it's about time she experiences her next growth spurt (6 weeks?), but to the contrary, she seems to be spending less time at the breast.
Otherwise, her frequency of feeding remains unchanged.
Does it follow that babies get more efficient at sucking, or my milk flow actually increases such that she gradually needs to spend less time at the breast?
Many thanks for your thoughts/ advice.
