    How long should an average nursing session should last?

    We’re often asked how long an average nursing session should last. There is no right answer to this and no relationship exists between the length of a nursing session and how much milk is consumed by baby. ⁣

    The best rule of thumb is to allow for cue-based feeds and let baby set the pace. How are baby’s poops? How is baby’s weight gain? Are you seeing/hearing lots of active swallowing at the breast? Is baby content after feeds? If so, you likely have nothing to worry about. ⁣

    How long is a typical nursing session for you?
