how fast? — The Bump
Breastfeeding

how fast?

Ds empties each breast very quickly. Id say total is about 7-10 mins for both sides. crazy! he started this at 2 mos old. Just curious if anyone else experiences this, im not worried just mystified. PLus I get comments all the time like "wow hes fast!" which makes me think people think im cutting him off or something.

oh and my letdown is fast fyi

Re: how fast?

  • 7-10 minutes is normal - they get much more efficient with time.  We're down to 3-4 minutes now (if I can get him to sit still that long).
