Post subject: we are still feeding every 2 hours
i can maybe push it to 2 1/2 sometimes!
problem is he doesnt sleep in the day so he wants to feed all the time!
ive tried all of the obvious when he cries and then end up giving him a feed.
he only stays on the breast for 5 - 10 mins and even on the odd occasion when he stays on longer he still wants to be fed 2 hours later.
anybody else breastfeeding this often at 11 weeks?
he goes for 7 hours at night!

Yep. Jamie fed every two hours day and night (and more when going through a growth spurt) until he was about 4 months and then he did start to go a bit longer between feeds. We tried everything but nothing made a difference so I just accepted he needed to feed little and often. Was tough though. Particularly as he also used to cluster feed in the evenings so I was just permanently attached to him
