This is our first baby and thus my first experience with BFing. My son goes through phases. He will go about 2 hours between nursing and then when he nurses he will be on for about 20 minutes. Then he will go through spurts where he wants to nurse every 30-45 min and is only on for 6 minutes. It's only 2:45 and he has already eaten about 13 times today. It makes for really long nights. Is this normal? Do I just have to wait it out or is there anything I can do to make the feedings longer? He does fall asleep and I try to wake him but sometimes he just doesn't want to wake up. Any suggestions are appreciated.
