Hi Cyanidebaby, glad to hear that your baby has finally taken on to your right!! Yay! That's really an achievement! For you and your little one.
For the first month, feeding my boy also took a long time. Like PinkDiamonds, my boy was also frequently falling asleep. Being craddled by mummy very comfy but I was very frustrated and sleep-deprived. Not to mention that he also has a lot of trapped gas so burping him could take as long as 15min. What I did was for one feed, I would express and let my hubby feed by bottle so that I can go and sleep.
For the 1st month, feeding my boy was 15min left, burp, 15min right, burp. In between he fall asleep, gotta put him down, tickle him, use some wet cotton ball to dab his eyes, change his diapers.... So the whole process would take around 45min to an hour.
I try not to drag beyond one hr as it would affect the next feed. My baby was fed on schedule every 3 hours.
