  • It is just when your baby wants to eat more frequently than the every 2-3 hours.  This is normal in breastfed babies (I'm not sure about FF).

    Kelly Mom is a great resource if you are breastfeeding.

  • It seems like your baby is eating constantly for hours on end! It can be exhausting!

  • Alot of moms including myself will cluster feed thier babies at night and it helps them sleep longer at night beings they are fuller.

  • It usually happens about once a day, for me it's in the evening from around 6-10/11. I've heard from a lot of women that time is typical, because the babies are trying to get as much food in as possible before bed time, that's how they sleep for longer stretches at night. Basically LO is permanently attached to my breast during those hours. She'll nurse for 30 minutes, and want to nurse again 20 minutes later, and that'll continue for a couple hours.
