By the time babies are 5 months old they start nursing well. however the duration differs for each baby. they can nurse from 5-10 minutes or stay there longer. Babies like routine. Follow a routine where the baby knows what comes up next. If there is a change in the routine some babies get fussy. Try massaging your baby, a warm bath, play soft calming music, keep the room quiet and dark.
