I'm brand new here! I have a gorgeous 3 and a half week old baby girl and I am deeply in love with her! From day one she fed and slept like a dream.
We are Co-sleeping and demand feeding.
I noticed a pattern starting to emerge that she cluster feeds upon waking in the morning - around 3 feeds in close succession and then sleeps for about 3hours with a short feed, then sleeps another 3 hours with a short feed then sleeps about 2 hours and then the cluster feeding begins from about 4:30 - 9:30pm she pretty much sits on my boob!! But then we sleep pretty much through the night! (maybe one or 2 feeds).
However - most days this week she has just wanted to sit on my boob ALL DAY... I mean I don't even have 10 min off between 9am and 9pm. I'm not sure what to do, its driving me crazy! The house is trashed, I'm not even sure if I go to the toilet anymore (I don't think I have time!). And she seems to only settle when I feed her in a ring-sling and walk around the house.
Is this a phase? A growth spurt? Or have I somehow taught her bad habits!?
Love your advice!
