My daughter is 10 weeks old and I had a VERY VERY hard time getting started nursing with her, even though she is my third! It has really only been a few weeks that we have had pain free nursing, so YEAH!!
My concern is that she is nursing TOO often. During the afternoon/evening hours, she sometimes willl want to nurse every hour or two and I don't mind, but I don't want to make a pattern of feeding her every time she is upset. She sleeps for 8-10 hours straight at night, will nurse for 5-10 minutes, then sleep for another 2-3 hours. She is gaining weight (at her 2 month she was 24 inches and 12 pounds, from 20 inches and 8.6 at birth) and is a really happy baby most of the time, but I am worried about overfeeding her. She doesn't tend to cry about much, and when she wants to nurse again after an hour, I try to otherwise occupy her (singing, playing, walking around, bathtime, etc) but most of the time it doesn't work and she seems hungry.
Any help/advice on this would be much appreciated!!
