Normal for 3 mo old?

DD2 turned 3 months yesterday and for the past week and a half or so, is nursing constantly...as in doesn't mind being held by me or someone else, playing, and then getting fussy all within maybe 20-30 minutes. Sometimes DH can calm her, but if she's with me, I'll just nurse her for a bit until she falls asleep.

Is this normal for her to be nursing every 20-30 minutes during the day? She sleeps through the night mostly, waking maybe once at night.

Right on target for a 3 month old (except for the sleeping thorough the night part, you hit the jackpot on that one!!)

Mine does that too shes 3months as well
Sleeps through the night and all that
I feed her about every hr to 2 hrs during the day
I assume it's to make up for all the time she doesn't eat at night
I don't feed her Everytime she gets fussy a lot of the time she wants some sort of stimulation
Whether it be toys or sitting outside or she's tired and is fighting sleep

But she let's me know if she's not hungry she will not eat
She cries till I do the right thing
Makes it easier for me to know

When do the every 20-30 minutes feedings end? Is it because she sleeps through the night?

I'm so exhausted (despite sleeping at night) and can't get anything done anymore :( She doesn't want to be put down and hates the Moby. *sigh*

With mine, nursing fixes everything :( Its to the point now where its typically the first thing I offer because chances are, that's what she wants.

Normal.  Huge, pain in the neck growth spurt happens at about 12 weeks or so.  She'll settle down again in a few days to a week or two.  :-)

Hey my 2 Mo old does that. She will nurse all day long. I feel like i just sit in a chair switching sides all day. shes too fussy to put down cause as soon as I move she wakes up. Then falls asleep around 1030 11pm sleeps till about 530 6 am. and there s nothing that will calm her except nursing and I go back to work in 2 days,

My dd was just like that at this age, she is now 8 months old eats every 2-4 hours and is very independent. Although she quit sleeping through the night. Dang it... Hang in there it gets much easier. :)
