My 3 month old feeds 30-40 minutes per side

Question:

My 3 month old feeds between 30-40 minutes per side...is that normal? Sometimes it's straight feeding other times I have to keep waking him up.

Answer:

Enjoli, Every baby is different and what you describe isn't an uncommon feeding pattern for babies. As long as your baby is gaining weight and has 6-8 wet diapers and 1-2 dirty diapers a day, it's nothing to worry about. 

Kindest Regards,
