    very normal.
    I used to put dd in the sling, with my boob on a rolled up teatowel, so she could self serve, while I put the twins to bed (4yrs older)

    That sounds tiring...

    What are her wet and dirty nappies like? How have her weight gains been?

    Yes cluster feeding can be normal however if she has a shallow latch and/or tongue tie she may not be transferring milk effectively and so is getting hungry often.

    We are looking for 5 heavily wet nappies, 1-2 poos and around 120g per week to see she is getting enough milk. Plus evidence of a milk let down and swallowing during the feed

    Have you noticed any of these things?

    hi

    yes she is gaining abouut 200gms per week....she is a weeing and pooing machine,.,..im talking 6 poo's a day at least. she is a settled baby sleeps for 3 hrs at night after the feeding frenzy and then another 3 hrs after the 3am feed...she has just slep for 2.5 hrs after a one sided boob feed at 2.30pm....

    god i would love to able to feed in a sling...once that tongue tie is assessed i might give it a go if possible.

    last night she went from 6.30pm to 11.30pm feeding...i was falling asleeep...i looked like i was on the nod

    are you comfortable co-sleeping? cos if you are then thats valuable snooze time for you.
