My baby is almost 11 weeks old (adjusted age: 6 weeks) and still sleeps most of the day (is only awake when nursing and maybe an additional hour). When he wakes up, I offer him the breast, which he eagerly takes then passes out again. I'm worried he isn't spending much time awake or playing during the day. So my questions are: Should I be offering the breast when he wakes up or waiting for signs of hunger? Could the frequent nursing be making him extra sleepy during the day? Should I encourage more "awake" time? Thank you in advance for your help!
Note: He is thriving and gaining over 1 lb. per week (he's an EBF preemie already at the 50% percentile with weight and height)
