You could still be experiencing some of the six week growth spurt.

Lol, my ds was every 2 hrs until 19 months. It's pretty average.

Yep, totally normal. I went through that at various times for the first six months with all three.

My middle daughter did that to me.  She would eat every two hours aroud the clock for the first 2 months.  I was a walking zombie that also had a 18 month old walking around.  Hang in there.  It gets better.  Be thankful for the 3-4 hour clips.  I think by the time she was 4 months old she was sleeping about 6 hours at night.  Keep up the great work momma!  You'll get through it.

Normal stuff! Tired is the default setting of motherhood! **grin** Death, taxes and never sleeping a full night again are your three guarantees.

Same here! A baby nursing every two hours is normal through the first year or longer.

I napped with my babies to combat the fatigue.
