    River is bottle fed and only takes about 5-10 minutes to take a 6oz bottle this is including a burp and she very rarely is sick on her milk.

    all the books say 25 - 40 mins for a feed?

    How long do your little ones take?

    Bryson takes about 45 minutes with a 5 oz bottle. This includes stopping to burp in between.

    Joe's the same!! He takes between 10-15 minutes for a 6oz bottle and then 5 minutes for burps. We try and stop half way for burps but he's having none of it lol!

    It takes us anywhere from 30 mins, to an hour to get caitlin to take 5oz, we stop half way through to wind her though.

    It takes me about twenty minutes for my LO to get through 5oz's, but winding him normally takes another 15-20mins.
