It's normal. No need to worry. Baby is not feeding in one stretch I guess. She will feed a little and sleep meanwhile I guess. Then again when you want to put down to sleep they will again feed. I can understand it will be tiresome for you.

thanks Roopashree Siddireddy for your quick response😃

hi Firdous, thanks for the tag... usually upto 3 minths babies feed a lot at night. but if she is feeding more than usual, baby maybe going through a growth spurt, this not only gets her more milk, but also ups your supply for her increasing appetite... if she is crying, she maybe colic, is it so?

Roopashree Siddireddy

When you feed and if she sleeps immediately...then wake her up by touching her feet or ears. Then she will latch again. Feed for half an hour and put her down when she sleeps. If you keep carrying her and let her feed how she is now...then baby will get habituated by that pattern. She won't allow you for anything.

hi sheeba, she is not crying she just want me to feed her. earlier she just take feed for 20 to 30 min max not more then that, but from yesterday night she needs it continuously.

Roopashree Siddireddy

she is getting used to the warmth, comfort and presence of you. My girl use to do that. Why to strain and push themselves to latch tummy full milk...when mom is nearby and can feed on demand. Ha ha ha ha. Smart kids now a day...

Roopashree Siddireddy

They will latch for 2-3 times. and again they sleep. If you want to move, shake or close BM...again they will latch. Like that..whole night they want to have. It's so much strain on mother.

haha haha.. thanks sheeba and roopashree after reading your comments I am feeling better..

Sheeba Vijesh

ya, like roopashree said, keep waking up and feed... finally she will sleep... after sleeping, either keep ur hand at her bumps or some cloth... i used to trick my baby to think i was still holding like that.. 😜
