OK, so on the breast from 2AM- 3PM, for 13 hours?

And she took a break?  

All sounds good.

Remember, the normal you worry about is the dipe count. How are you doing there? As far as this baby is concerned, you've NEVER had another child ever.

Dipes are a 24 hour count. You want six in 24 hours.

Less then 6 is ok if they're really soppy wet though, right? Is it just a few spoonfuls of liquid that counts as one?

Try a few different positions?

Laying down on my side was pretty much the only way I could get this LO to nurse from the time she was almost 2mo's to almost 3mo's.

I need a 24 hour dipe count. At this moment, considering you say she nursed for 13 hours straight, I'm not at all concerned.

The very wet is at least two dipes. Possibly 3 or even 4!. And the needed count is lower at the two month point; 5 will be plenty. 4 TB water = one wet. 

Remember, count everything in her life over 24 hours. From your own account, she nursed continually for more than half a day.
