Jenna is over 6 wks old. Since birth she has cluster fed every evening until bed time. I am talking hours on end of nursing with short breaks and i mean 10 minutes here and there.i AM getting burned out from this every single day. She rarely goes 2 hours even in morning or afternoon without eating unless she's having a long nap. She hardly sleeps from late afternoon until bed time which is 10pm until 1am (yes she ate 9 hours straight until 1am!! last night). I am thoroughly exhausted. She was sleeping 5-6 hours but last night after the constant feedings until 1am only slept until 5am. and was up for 45 min eating again.I feel like i am losing it. She is so cranky too from late afternoon until bed. Any suggestions? Nurse at drs office said its all normal for a 6 wk old that she just wants to be close to me and nurse. Pacifier only works for a few minutes here and there. She is gaining weight fast so she's getting more than enough. So tired!! I don't think i could pump enough bottles for this baby at night. Anyone else going through this?
