While every baby is different, newborns generally eat every two to three hours for a total of eight to 12 times every 24 hours. In the first day or two after birth, babies typically eat one to two ounces per feeding. This amount will gradually increase to two to three ounces once the baby reaches about two weeks of age.

How long do nursing sessions take? Again, every baby is different so there is no set time frame that every newborn is required to follow. But generally, breastfeeding newborns lasts anywhere from five minutes to one hour in duration. This timing will depend on the newborn’s size, age, and feeding frequency.
