I thought I was prepared after reading in the "what to expect when expecting book" that they can nurse anywhere from 1 1/2 hours-4 hrs.Wrong! My son nursed ever half hour. It was very time consuming and exhausting. I wasn't getting any sleep.But, that's they way it was and had to be for a few months till his tummy got bigger. His doctor said feed him when he's hungry no matter how often that is. My son is 3yrs old now. Very healthy,slim and tall for his age. It was normal. I was what he needed at the time. The eating evens out and the weight evens out.
