BF question

So those of you breast feeding how often do your LO eat and for how long on each side? Ciara does about every 2 to 3 hours about 5 to 10 minutes on each side.

Spencer usually feeds about 15 minutes on one side, I always offer the second side but he rarely takes it.

One of my twins feeds for what seems like forever... the other feeds for about 15 minutes. Right now I am dealing with over-supply issues so I do not offer the other side as they just get fore-milk when I do so.

I do one breast at a time because I have lots of milk too.
Heidi usually eats every 2 to 4 hours and for about 10 minutes.

It really depends. Sometimes he will just nurse for 10-15 minutes other times he wants to nurse for 20 min no one side. He defiantly prefers my right side which DD did too. Sometimes he'll nurse both sides but he usually does one, passes out then will be satisfied or wants the other side in half an hour-an hour later.
