Am I Doing Something Wrong?

Kailyn • Navy wife + mom of 2

My son is 5 weeks old and breastfed. He eats every 1.5 hours on average. This is during the day AND night. He only nurses about 10 minutes (5 minutes on each side) and this is how he’s been from the beginning - a short nurser.

Is he not getting enough milk and that’s why he eats so often? He has enough wet diapers and is growing.

But I’m exhausted and so tired of feeding him so often at night. I’ve read other babies the same age are going 4-6 hours between feeds at night. HOW.
