My little guy is almost 3 months old and eats about every 3 hours, for about an hour at a time. During the night he sometimes goes over 5 hours without a feeding. My mom breastfed both my sister and I and seems to think that his feedings last too long. Is an hour too long for a 3 month old to be nursing? He has been at about this same schedule since a month old or so, and he is my first child so I don't know any different. I'm also curious because he is on the small side, and I'm a little worried about whether he is getting enough milk or not. He just recently started sleeping over 5 hours at night without nursing, so I'm concerned that is affecting my milk supply.
At his last dr. appt. he was 2 months and 1 week old and weighed 9 lbs. 4 oz. People tell me all the time how small he is, and my husband and I were not small babies, so I'm becoming nervous. Anyway, not to ramble, I'm just hoping for some advice. Thanks!
