Thread: cluster feeding

    Default cluster feeding

    My newborn (12 days old) will cluster feed everyday from 5:30am to about 10am. Is this normal? Also, he has a good latch but my nipples still get sore while he cluster feeds. When will the soreness go away and my nipples adjust to breastfeeding?

    Yes, this is totally normal. He is going through a growth spurt. http://kellymom.com/bf/normal/growth-spurt.html

    So glad this is normal! My three week old has started cluster feeding every half hour during the day. At night he still feeds every 2 hours. I thought there may be something wrong with either me or him! I had started to panic until I started reading up on cluster feeds.

    hiya, you're probably sorted by now but Lansinoh cream is pure lanolin and i used it for the first 6 weeks or so - my dd cluster feeds for hours in afternoon/evening!
