    Default Cluster Feeding

    Is this cluster feeding?

    My 3wk old seems to be feeding for up to 30mins almost every 40-60mins from about 5pm until..well she still feeding now and its 11pm! Yesterday she went from 9pm until 2am ! She feeds, falls asleep (most if the time), i put her in bassinet, she wakes within 30mins, we try settle her but it obvious she wants boob, starts sucking and tongue poking, etc, so i put her on and feed again...this is repeated until she finally falls asleep for a good 3-4 hours.
    Is that cluster feeding ?

    Cluster feeding, and maybe 3 week growth spurt. You many find things settle down in a couple of days. And then it happens again at 6 weeks.

    Oh this sounds like my DS (3 weeks old tomorrow) though he likes to do it all morning from about 6am to 11am, problem is I'm not a morning person at all swapsies??

    I assume it is cluster feeding... I have trouble managing to have time to run to the toilet, brush my hair, etc before he gets hungry again for boobies! He's becoming quite the little fatty, hehe!!
