Cluster feeding issues
My son is 7 weeks old and every evening about 5 all he wants to do is nurse until about 11.
He spend 10-15 minutes on each side eating and then comfort nurses for about 30 minutes on the last side.
Then he will take a 10 minute break. During eating time I can hear a good suck-swallow rhythm but during comfort nursing his suck is weaker with no or little swallowing.
It is overwhelming as dad can't hardly spend any time with him and I am the only one who can comfort him.
I know it is normal and will end eventually. He is content after eating the rest of the day. I just want some reassurance that I am doing the right thing. He is my third. My older two didn't go through this phase. He was also a month early. Thanks!
