Re: Feeding on demand - When does it get easier
hi mama, congrats!!
all babies are different, but most mamas see things get dramatically easier right around now, and perhaps again at the end of the "fourth trimester" (12 weeks or so). it will likely be a gradual getting easier over time.
a lot of mamas find that a carrier of some sort that allows you to get up and do stuff and get out of the house, will also help baby feel secure without being attached at the boob all the time.
this is assuming he's gaining well ... one reason a baby might be continuously nursing more than typical is if he's havign trouble getting enough milk. so: what is his weight gain history? how many wet diapers every day?
feeding every 2 hours through the night is definitely still in the range of normal here, and there are many on here who find that it remains normal for a LONG time (for us, through 21 months when i started to limit it). most babies will start to have a longer sleep session pretty soon, and that's often the first sleep cycle of the night (so go to bed early with your baby!). there are other things you can do to increase your rest while still nursing on demand - like cosleeping, going to bed early, napping with baby, etc. again assuming that baby is gaining well.
