If your breasts are full ur baby's hunger may be satisfied within five mins too if ur milk supply is less then it will take 15-20 mins. The time how long u must feed ur baby depends on various factors. The milk supply, ur baby's hunger,etc. Some babies sleep while feeding while some hang on to the nipple for soothing while some get off from breasts if they r full n satisfied. I have experienced all this with my two and half old twins.

Hi Supriya.. my doctor had suggested approx 10mins on each side.. it also depends on your baby.. very young babies feed for almst 30-45mins(newborns)... as they get a hang of breastfeeding they feed only for 15-20mins (3-4mnth old)and then maybe just 10mins. .(5-6mnths old) Also,don't force feed.. and feed evry 2 hrs or on demand!

Doc says 15 mins to 30 mins per feed, but it completely depends on your baby how often he or she feels hungry also on factors like if your baby is sleeping while feeding etc.
