Hi ladies, my little boy is 3 weeks old, most certainly going thru a growth spurt. Has been nursing every 2 hours during the day and today has nursed almost non stop from 5:30 pm and has not really wanted to stop ... And is currently nursing at 11 pm as I type this!
He will nurse so much sometimes that he will open his mouth and let a bunch of milk fall out. Or he will nurse to the point that he spits up the milk! I suspect there is no room left in his stomach. Are these behaviors normal?
Typically I only give him on breast per nursing session.
Oh and also every time he nurses it takes him 45 mins up to 70 or 80 mins....8-9 times a day! Literally all I do all day is nurse!
