Today LO went to bed at about 2:30 after a couple of hours of nursing almost nonstop.

Yep, that's exactly what he's doing! Hopefully he starts doing it at night for you so you can get some rest while everyone else does! That's what usually ends up happening naturally--they cluster feed in the evening and then sleep all night. Sounds like he's mixed up now, which my LO is too! Our "bedtime" around here has been 3-4am!

Blake is doing this and I agree, I kinda like it! My other two was like your previous every two hours around the clock and this way is so much better!

It seems like the long period of sleep is getting later, so eventually I'm hoping it'll be over night instead of in the late afternoon. He wakes up every few hours over night and nurses almost constantly, which kinda stinks because I have a hard time sleeping during the day time hours. He WILL NOT wake up to eat until he's ready, but I'm not worrying too much about it because at his 2 day checkup he had already gained back some weight and had only 4 ounces left until he was back at his birth weight.

Baby Marcus goes back and fourth he wakes every 3 or 4 hours but then a day or two later he will sleep during the day and wake up during the night. Dh and I have two feeding times if his last bottle is at 11:00pm then he will eat again at 2 and then again 5. Dh has the first feeding so that I can sleep then I take the 5 am so dh can get ready and leave for work. However it seems Marcus likes being up during my time or takes an 1 hour
