WTH?

I nursed DS who is six weeks old today for almost an hour (we both kept falling asleep) then in one hour he's already perched on there again. I'm so tired......is cluster feeding a sign of a growth spurt or is he just using me as a human pacifier?

Could be a combo of both :)

Definitely growth spurt, and yes he is also comfort nursing. All normal and desirable--he is bringing up your supply to meet his next level of need.

Both and both are normal and expected. Stay relaxed and enjoy it while it lasts

Could be both! My baby is 10 weeks and we still have days like that :)

No such thing as a human pacifier. Pacifiers are mom replacement devices. All normal. Welcome to the six week growth spurt. Another one is due in another six weeks!
