How long should I keep my two month old up and space her meals out during the day?

Well during the night my baby girl is perfect. Sleep from 11 till 3am and then 4am till 7am. During the day though she eats for about 10 min and then sleeps for an hour. Then she gets up all over again to eat ten min and sleep. If by any chance she does stay on me longer it's just for a pacifier. So my problem is that she's eating a little bit every hour and sleeping the whole day.

well, it all depends on how you look at it and what you want. I guess it is fine for her to "snack" as some put it and sleep the way she does, but if it isn't working for you just try to console her for a bit longer between meals. I will say my little guy was a big eater. He is 10 months old now but when he was that young he never went over 2 hours without eating, so maybe that is just her way. Anyway, maybe try consoling her as I said for a bit, and see if that works for the both of you, you may find that the way it is now is the best way for her right now. She will start spacing meals out as she gets older though, it's normal for them to eat like that this young. I hope that helped, find what's best for you and your little one.
