Colton is a hard nurser. Chayden was super easy to nurse. He loved nursing!!! He would comfort nurse for MINUTES during our sessions just for that special bond I'm sure. Our Sessions lasted 45 long, loving minutes. He didn't care if it was light out, dark out, loud, noisy ... He LOVED to comfort nurse and I allowed it and took full advantage of it.
But, my sweet, chunky Colton. Oh ... um... He nurses about once every 2 hours. He nurses about 3 minutes on each side, tops. He sucks once, lets go. Sucks again, lets go, etc etc .... Thank GOD I have a fast let down or else we'd be at this all day. He just, I don't know, hates nursing? He isn't much of a snuggler unless he is standing up so its hard to nurse him. But, I will not fail at this. My goal is 2 years & while Colton refuses comfort nursing now ... I hope he catches on in the future. He is ONLY 5 months old so I hope it changes. I feel like I want that special bond with him. Don't get me wrong, we have a very special bond. But only if he is NOT nursing. =[
