Baby Natalie still nurses frequently at almost 2 months... usually every 1-2 hours, longer only if she takes a long nap, which is once a day at most. Should I be concerned or do something differently? Part of it is that she nurses to sleep for naps and she always wants to nurse when she gets up from naps, AND her naps are almost always short. To boot she is a bit on the fussy side. Any advice/insight?
It sounds pretty normal to me, but you would know best ;) Is she pooping and peeing enough? Gaining well? Assuming yes, then it's not like she's going back to boob alot because she's not getting enough. This might just be her pattern for nursing. It is tiring, though, I know - DS2 was a frequent nurser like that (oversupply contributed to it, I think - any chance you are dealing with that?) and DD is pretty frequent as well. She will go a 3-4 hour stretch once at night, then a couple of 2.5 hour stretches, and then during the day she is a short napper and usually doesn't go longer than 2 hours between nursing sessions.
Sounds perfectly normal! Mine have certainly all been that way. At 3 months (when I go back to work) feedings become less frequent. I nurse right before I leave, DH gives one morning bottle (of pumped breastmilk), I nurse at lunch, then DH gives one to 2 more afternoon bottles before I get home at 5:30 or 6:30. My leaving is probably the only reason feedings become less frequent though. My babies seem to nurse more frequently the days I'm home (I only work 3 days/wk) I think for comfort even more than nourishment.
