My baby sometimes sucks for almost 40 minutes in a feed. And sometimes only 10-15 mins. Also the force with which she sucks reduces gradually and sometimes it's just nibbling. But even I get confused whether she is getting milk or she is just sucking the nipple. And she has never been awake after a feed to take her to the other breast after one since I am currently following the one breast at a feed pattern. Any suggestions on how to be sure if baby is getting enough milk? Also at times I feel the latch is lost and she is just sucking. Totally confused 😐😐

I too was having similar confusion and i have it now also sometimes and thats y i resorted to formula. Only weight gain and pee counts per day ensure that bm supply is adequate. Otherwise swallowing sounds of the baby while being latched on ll let u know that milk is going into the baby's tummy. My baby is never satisfied after breastfeeding even if i hear good swallowing sounds and see his mouth filled with bm. And about the duration of latching and sucking, it ll vary now.
