Ds has suddenly started feeding for 5-10 minutes only then falling asleep. He'll then wake up again 10-20 minutes later wanting more, but again he'll only feed for 5-10 minutes before falling asleep again. This happens over & over again.
So now im sitting here for hours holding him & trying to feed him, unable to do anything but sit in my chair with my boobs hanging out, leaking everywhere, waiting for him to wake up. Or I put him down & he immediately wakes up screaming for food so I just have to pick him up again.
When I feed anyway it is extremely messy & milk goes everywhere, so getting set up for a feed takes a few minutes & involves towels or terry flats over my clothes & feeding pillow, face washers tucked into my bra etc - so its frustrating to have him go to sleep & put him down, then have him wake up & have to get set up all over again
Ive tried changing his nappy & taking his clothes off, which works in that instance, but then he just keeps falling asleep again. Plus, getting up to change his nappy involves moving towels, terry flats, face washer, nipple shield etc & then having to put all that stuff back on again when he's screaming after he's finally woken up.
I dont know if this is cluster feeding or what, but im starting to get really frustrated. Is this normal?
