    Default 3 month old feeds

    Is it normal for 3 month olds to only feed 10-15 Min at a time???

    I think so - my little guy is getting to the same age and we're both a lot better at breast feeding than we used to be

    That's good. We were originally doing the feed play feed sleep routine, but since he's been going thru the 3rd wonder leap, he's naturally taken on the feed play sleep routine, but only feeding for 10-15min at a time. I was concerned he wasn't feeding enough...

    My little one was doing 3 minute feeds for awhile there. Some bubs get quite efficient at getting what they need.

    I downloaded an app the other day to help me try to keep track of what side is next (didn't work, even with an app I'd click the wrong side, baby brain to the extreme!). Anyways it timed them and in a feed DS (3 months) would do on average 7 minutes on the first side and 4 on the second sometimes only 1-2 minutes. He's been a fast feeder for ages now but has heaps of wet and pooey nappies and great weight gain so even though I sometimes worry he's not getting enough because he's finished quickly he obviously is and just very efficient!

    I'll give that a try! But don't be surprised if I mix that up as well! 'The hair tie's on my left, does that mean I just did it or need to?'
