By how many minutes

5 or 10 minutes for about the first two to three weeks. The first week the baby will be get use to breast and bottle feeding. Every baby varies in minutes you have to control the about of milk. Oh the milk is like a waterfall it will go everywhere some times just to let you know.

Its hard babies have a schedule but when you breast feed or bottle feed did it about one and a half or two hours. So it will gave a idea what they want, when they want it, or when they need it.

Can i drink is im breast feeding

No its not safe for the baby still. It can still cause problems to their health. But a glass of wine is okay every once and awhile. But a party of drinks and breast feeding just is not health.
