Today DD has napped probably 3 times for about 20 minutes at a time which is pretty average for her. Is this normal? She is 6 weeks old today and fully breastfed. If she doesn't sleep during the day she does pretty well at night with a 5 hour stint and another 2 or 3 hour stint after a good feed. She's quite a perma feeder during the day and would feed for hours if she could. She has calmed down a bit with that, a few weeks ago it was quite normal to have up to 6 hour feeding marathons (on one occassion it was 9 hours!!). At best she feeds every 2 hours for about an hour to 90 minutes. Unfortunately this means that when I'm at home with both DD and DS it's very tricky as DD gets all my attention and DS watches way too much TV (when I'm feeding DD). I've tried slings, swings and a dummy. She insists on being held. If by chance she does have a day sleep it's usually only in my arms and will wake up the moment I put her in her bassinet.
When do breastfed babies start to fall into some sort of feed, play sleep pattern or at least become a bit more predictable? Gahhh, I'm so tired and worn out
