My daughter nurses on each side 5 min or less and has been doing this since about 7 or 8 months old. She always seems satisfied so I am assuming she is getting plenty. The hour thing doesnt last long. He should get better each week.

Lincoln took an hour to eat for the first 2 months and then he went to about half and hour and now at 7 months he can get all he needs on one side and in only 5 min!

I think he's doing a lot of comfort nursing right now since he's so little.
