    Haven't read all responses, but it sounds like a growth spurt coming on. For us, things got WAY easier at around 6 to 7 weeks. After that, it just keeps getting easier and better. Hang in there, Mama. We know how it is, it is NOT easy right now.
    Mother - Wife - Artist - Cook - Writer - EnvironMENTAList - Cloth Diaperer (but we are soooo done with diapers) - Organic Health Nut...I'm sure there's more.

    DD1 - 12/15/05 Breastfed for 16.5 months
    DD2 - 8/6/07 Breastfed for 3 whole years and 3 little, extra days.

    It's funny to be on the other end of this question. It seems that not that long ago I was right in your shoes. Today, my LO is 11 weeks and it seems so long ago I was asking the same question.

    It is definately much easier now than at 5 weeks. It took me about 6-7 weeks to stop feeling like a zombie. Baby Peter fed every 2 hours night and day. Today, we're pushing 7.5 hours of straight sleep at bedtime! Then 3 hrs, then another 2 (if the blinds are closed!)... then all day long could be anywhere from 2 - 3 hours in between feedings. All in all, it stills works out to be about 8 bf sessions a day.

    I feel lucky to have everything working well - but I'll bet it's just because I stuck to breastfeeding no matter how hard / tiring it was in the beginning!

    Good Luck!
