Its normal for breastfed babies to only feed for about 5-10 minutes at a time, my son only ever fed for 5 minutes or so at a time, maybe she takes longer and drinks less with the bottles because she's not used to the different type of sucking needed to get the milk out Question , some babies don't like combination feeding and prefer one method over the other, if you've introduced the bottles because you're worried she's not getting enough with the breast milk, then as long as she was gaining weight and looked full and satisfied and slept with just the breast feeds then there's no reason to "top her up" Smile xx
