Second, how do I get her to nurse longer, but less often. She's gaining properly and has plenty of wet/dirty diapers.
I'd just like her to go longer than 1.5-2 hours between feedings and maybe nurse longer at each feeding so she wouldn't need to come back to often.
Right now she's nursing at least 8 minutes on one side, burping and going to the other side for a few minutes. We just started getting to that. It used to be up to 10 minutes on one side only.
She cluster feeds between 6-11pm and then goes down for the night (8hours) at 11ish. Wakes up at 7am, nurses and goes right back to sleep or 2 hours.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
