    Default Cluster feeding problem

    I think I finally figured out my newborn's fussiness problem.. she is very fussy at night and the only thing that seems to clam her down is to hang out at the breast. She feeds in 2-3 hour increments during the daytime and either sleeps or is awake with contentment in between. The problem is the fussiness or cluster feeding happens between 10pm and 5am. She then sleeps in long stretches from 5am-12pm. How do I get her to change her cluster feeding schedule?

I don't know if there is a way to change the cluster feeding schedule (if there is, I didn't find it! ), but I do know that there are lots of things you can do to make baby's cluster feeding more manageable AND that cluster feeding doesn't last forever. It's pretty much a newborn phenomenon. Here's some info with tips and more links:
