Re: nursing often enough?
Yeah, I had this same problem about 2 weeks ago (and I guess I still do...). DS is 7 weeks old and he sleeps way too well (I know, what a curse, right?!) Anyway, he goes to bed around 10pm, wakes up between 5 and 6, and then eats about every 3-4 hours. So, that means that he eats between 5 and 6 times a day. However, he has enough wet and dirty diapers, he is happy and growing, so I don't worry about it.
Also, DS has reflux, and from what I understand, it can cause babies to want to eat less because they associate feedings with belly/reflux pain. Does you babby have any signs of reflux like spitting up between feedings (sometimes clear, fowl smelling), arching back while feeding, tilting head to one side (this kinks off the esophagus so the acid doesn't come up and bother them), not wanting to be held, etc?
