Eating too fast

My LO used to feed on each side for 15 to 20 min. Now he at most feeds 6 to 8 min on each side. He is still gaining weight and healthy but after he eats so quickly he always spits up a lot. He already has a little reflux so the extra spit up is really not a good thing.

Anyone have any tips for trying to get him to slow down. I EBF so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

  • My doctor said to try leaning back a little and that may slow flow.

    This. My LO sometimes only feeds 5 mins! Sometimes if he's going to fast ill take him off to burp and swallow. He hates it but it helps sometimes. Also, leaning back has them work against gravity slowing things down.
