My DD is a slow, leisurely eater--roughly 45 min. per breast. She also is eating every 2.5 hours, so when she finishes, she's back on both breasts. So, I really can't NIP or on the go with her (mall, zoo, park, etc.) since I have my 3 year old with me--he wouldn't stay put for nearly 90 min. So, I have to resort to the bottle (with my breastmilk). I envy those mothers who can latch their kid and be finished in 20 min!
I've had 2 LCs give me conflicting information: 1 told me that she shouldn't nurse for more than 15 min., while another told me to leave her on as long as she wants in order to get all of the hindmilk. I followed the 2nd LC's advice, and here I am--spending almost 8 hrs a day nursing my daughter.
Do any of you experienced breast feeding moms of slow nursers tell me if your child picked up the pace as they got older or if you did anything to encourage them to pick up the pace?
