my son at about this age did the same thing. it was like he figured it all out and didn't need to spend as much time nursing becasue he was more effective... is your son still having enough wet diapers? Is he eating more frequently to make up for the shorter feeds?

He may just be getting better/faster at getting the milk out. The older he gets the more efficient he will become at nursing. Breastfed babies are good at knowing when they're full and he sounds like he has plenty of dirty diapers so I wouldn't worry.

No hes not Hot.
And Yes lots of wet diapers and eats about every 1 1/2-2 hours still.So i guess its normal? Does it mean maybe my milk comes out fast?
