Answer:
you need to check the flow of your milk. If it is less, you take care of your diet. You should also feed on both the sides for equal duration, that is 10 minutes at one side and another 10 minutes on the other side. If the milk flow is good, 20-25 minutes would be sufficient. You can take help of lactation expert in hospital for this too.
