DD is getting annoying with feeds. She will take so long to eat and will nurse for hours if I let her. She never seems to be happy unless she is on the breast. She won't nurse in the moby and so I'm selling that and trying to either get some CDs or another carrier to try. It's just annoying that she seems like she's never done.

Growth spurt?

 How are her diapers? It is most likely a growth spurt, I wouldn't worry unless the diaper count is low(looking for at least 4-5+ sopping wets a day for her age). Does she have any other symptoms or behaviors going on?

Many newborns are on the breast constantly. Do you co-sleep? Is baby having at least 4-5 wet/messy diapers per day? Gaining adequately? If so, it is probably normal nursing behavior. The first 3 months are filled with constant growth spurts, so baby will need to nurse (almost) constantly. Do you have other kids or something else pressing you have to do other than nurse baby? If so, then find a sling or carrier that is compatible with nursing. If not, try to take this time to relax with and enjoy your new baby. This is such a short period of time in baby's life. Before you know it, you may be wishing for these days again.

Co sleep. Baby can nurse while you sleep. Then he may nurse less during the day.

Diapers are fine but growth spurts lasting for weeks?

it is about the time for a growth spurt. it can be for a while or a couple of days, just depends. definitely get a different carrier and try nursing like that. Also, lying down was my fav!
