    Default Shorter breastfeeds?

    So up until a month ago, DD was an hour long feeder- half an hour per side.
    A month ago, it became more like 45 mins for a full feed.
    Now, it's anywhere between an half an hour (usually first feed in the morning) and 10 mins per side!

    We are no longer supplementing with formula, I haven't had her weighed, but we are still getting wet nappies. She seems hydrated. The shorter feeds seem to coincide with solids... Is this normal?

    As far as I know it's normal as babies become much more efficient at their sucking. My DS is down to less than 10 mins per side and is 'draining' what he needs/wants

    I yhink it's fairly normal as DS did the same because I remember freaking out thinking surely he hadn't had enough.
