I'm new here and came by because I heard you were all very helpful!
I have an 8 week old little girl and within the last week and a half has developed an interesting feeding/sleeping schedule. I normally nurse her around 8:45 PM and then we go to bed. She sleeps for three and a half hours to four hours for her first stretch. This is wonderful, but then for the rest of the night she is waking every hour and 15 minutes to hour and a half. This continues until about 6 AM when we get up. Is this pattern normal and is there any way to "encourage" her to sleep longer spans between feedings? Each feeding during the hour and a half stage last about 5 minutes as she falls asleep and is done feeding. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
