Full ?: Breast feeding is both eating and nurturing.Babies lips are filled with pleasure sensors that make it feel good to feed, so the ones that like the nurturing can stay at the breast for as long as you allow and will suck fingers to enjoy the pleasure.Sucking does not mean hunger, an empty stomach does.Please do not confuse the two.More than 15 min on a side is nurturing ; suckling is pleasure.
