I'm new to the forum and a first time Mum. My 9 week old baby boy was feeding from one side for 15mins and the other side for 20-25mins (he normally only does one side each feed, but sometimes first feed in day and evening feeds he will take both sides a feed). In the last week he is only feeding from 5-10mins on one side and 10-15mins the other side (& all feeds are one side only), is this normal? Is he getting enough to drink (he usually has about 6-8 feeds a day, this has not changed, only the duration of feeds has changed)? He was pooing almost every nappy change but this has now slowed in the last week to 2 poos a day. We are still getting plenty of wet nappies (approx 6 a day) & bub has been having pretty good weight gains recently. We were still using nipple shields until 2 weeks ago (problems with short nipples & baby not latching well). Could it just be that bub is more efficient with feeding without the nipple shields or perhaps bub is struggling getting a good latch (he seems to be latched & feeding well)? He doesn't seem hungry and usually falls asleep after a feed.
