eating too often?

Back again with another question :) my ds2 is 9 weeks old and still eats about every two hours. Sometimes less sometimes more. He is growing, we are in size 2 diapers now, and he does have enough diapers, usually some extras. I'm only concerned because I thought it would be more spaced out by now.

Only every two hours at 9 weeks? My son was eating every 15-30 minutes at that age.

He could eat every two hours for a long time!

My son is almost 12 weeks and eats every 1 1/2-2 hours throughout the day. He goes about every 3-4 hours at night. Embrace the lack of sleep! :)

Ff babies start to eat less frequently because they start taking in more at a time. Bf babies pretty much don't start spacing out their nursing sessions until after they've hit a year and are eating lots of food.

Every two hours already?  You're doing great.  I didn't really start to get any breaks until 3 months or so.  All babies are different :)

My 11 and a half month old is starting to space out her feedings, and still nursing 1-2 times at night.

Yep, my DS didn't even start going 3 hrs between nursings until 11 months :-) and was also in size 2 by 7/8 weeks.
