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?

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
