by this age, baby is usually getting a lot more efficient at nursing, as well, vision has totally picked up, so they are more distracted and the nursing/sleeping pattern they had as little newborns shifts as they are seeing the world and are just distracted now. Just make sure you're still getting wet diapers. Try not to stress. If you're really concerned, try to nurse in a quiet and dim room every so often so he doesn't feel compelled to look our the window, television or siblings, or what not. Also, drooling really picks up around 3.5 months, teething or not. I remember thinking DS would be popping a tooth at 4 months due to his constant drooling, but alas, no teeth until 8 months. DD is now 4 months and she's a drool queen, but I'm not expecting any teeth anytime soon. And, same thing with the nursing, it'll seem like she's hardly nursing at all, constantly latching on then immediately pulling off to examine things, look around, watch her brother! Weight gain usually slows down about now too. I mean, they can't be doubling their weight every two months anymore, right?
