    Default Colostrum Feeds

    Hi all,

    Is there any set advice on how long the colostrum feeds should take/last?

    As long as they need to be.

    Bub will stop when they are done.

    Why do you ask?

    My DD took about 30 mins each side but she is a slow feeder.

    DD 1 & 2 took between 15-30 laminates. DS was a slow lazy eater and still is - between 30-40 minutes

    As long as they need even if this might be hours at a time. The suckling action also helps to bring the milk in and establish supply as well as sooth and calm your baby. In the early stages it's really important for baby to have complete access to the boobs for as long as they want.

    My son used to BF for around 30min in the first couple weeks. That was for both boobs. It was draining as he was awake every 3hrs but seemed a bit better once my milk came in.
