My daughter is nearly 8 months and she is breastfed as well as being on solids. I have noticed, however, that she is only feeding for a maximum of 8 minutes, and sometimes it is hard to keep her on for more than 4. I know that they get more efficient as they get older, and she is producing the requisite amount of wet and soiled nappies plus generally sleeping well, but I am still a bit concerned as it seems like a really short time. I have tried offering her cooled boiled water between feeds and she will have a few sips but otherwise isn’t hugely interested in it. Has anyone else had the same thing (not feeding for very long)? Should I be worried?
