At that age DD would nap randomly for 15 min here and there through the day in the pram/bouncer/on someone. She would scream from 1pm-11pm unless there was a boob in her mouth or very vigorous rocking. Then she would pass out for a couple of hours sleep, feeds would take 1 hour, more sleeps and start the day around 7am. She was lucky to total 8hrs sleep in 24 hours and was attached to the boob for 12/24 hours (I kept a diary to try to work out what the problem was). By 12 weeks nights were 7pm-7am no feeds (still 15min naps). I didn't change anything to make sleeping through happen - was all her.
DS at that age was having 4x 40min-2hr naps a day. He would also feed 2hrly but only take 15min to feed. Nights he would settle for 2hrs 9-11 feed then 11.15-1am ish, then party for 3 hours wide awke then 2 more x2hr sleeps. He always napped well but didn't stop needing night feeds til after 2.
Both mine were breastfed with formula top ups.

Dd1 - never napped much during the day unless worn. Slept 8-10hrs straight overnight then 3hrs again after a feed.
Dd2- only napped in carrier or pram for 1-3hrs. Slept 2-4HR blocks overnight.
Dd3- napped 1-3hrs during the day in carrier, pram and bassinet
Slept 8-10hrs overnight straight then 2-4hrs after a feed.
All exclusively breastfed.

Gosh, I don't know how people remember. It's been a long time since my babies were that age but just know that what your baby is doing is completely normal for that age

As for bassinet - he rarely goes down in it. During day I am finding pram or carrier is it. Bassinet hit and miss overnight, I get maybe one sleep in it usually 2-3 hours of successful. All feeds overnight are 1-3 hourly.
I think what you're describing is normal and you're doing a great job. It will all change again soon, just when you think you've got her sorted...

How much does/did your 6 week old sleep?
Sounds normal to me too. My DS would only sleep 40-60 mins a few times during the day but only in the hug a bub and occasionally the swing. Wanted to feed pretty constantly. There was no real "bedtime" he fed every 2-3 hours through the night. I think the first time he did a 4-5 hour stretch was about 7-8 weeks maybe.
