Asked a question last year

Hello doctor, my baby use to feed only for 2-3 min at every 1-2 hour. Also if given top feed he use to take only 20-30 ml. He is 11weeks old. Is this normal?

Where am I?

Dear Somya 

At 11 weeks of age, baby is allowed to breastfeed for as much or as less as he wants. By this age, most babies will drink for an average of 2-9mins per feed. 

As long as he's passing urine minimum 6-8 times in 24 hours and consistently gaining weight then it means that the milk supply is sufficient for the baby and that formula feeds are not required.
