Breastfeeding and pumping. Daughter slow to latch. Can a 15-20 min each side breast feeding session take the place of a pumping?

Breastfeeding and pumping. Daughter slow to latch but making progress. I am running ragged trying to pump and get her to latch. She's gaining weight and my supply is good. Just hard to balance these two aspects and get sleep. Can a 15-20 min each side breast feeding session take the place of a pumping session?

Yes, 15-20 min is totally normal for a feeding! Lots of skin to skin can help her latch, as well.
