Re: Around the clock
This is one of those terrific questions that have no good answer, because the answer for every mama-baby pair is going to be as different, as individual, as the mamas and babies in question. Some kids start spacing their feedings out to every 2-3 hours within a few weeks of birth. Others continue to nurse round-the-clock for months on end, never going more than a few hours without nursing until they're close to a year old, or even over a year.
10 weeks is very early to expect a baby to have spaced out his nursing sessions. A lot of people call the baby's first 3 months of life "the third trimester" because the baby is still so underdeveloped and needful of constant attention. The only reason the baby isn't still gestating is that the head will grow too large to fit through the mom's pelvis if pregnancy continues on. At 10 weeks you're not even to the point where your baby really wants to be born- so it's not really reasonable to expect him to be spacing out his feedings when what he really wants is to be fed almost constantly through an umbilical cord!
All that being said, I think you can expect things to get better in the next couple of months, as the baby gets bigger, stronger, and faster to nurse. He's also going to get more responsive- tiny babies don't often smile or coo or reach out to touch you, and that makes them less pleasurable to nurse than older babies who can show how much they adore you. I know from your previous posts that you have been struggling really hard to nurse this baby, and that is exhausting even if you're not chasing a toddler and holding down the fort at home. Do you have a sling? If you can master nursing on the go, that might free you up to do other things while also caring for the new baby.
You're doing so well, and it's awesome that you're soldiering on!
