I am a first time mom to a 3 1/2 month old baby girl. I have been nursing her every three hours (except at night...she has been sleeping through the night since one month old) since she was born and she is still growing and thriving...but for the past month, she has been extremely fussy and fidgety while nursing. I can usually only get her to nurse for about 7 minutes on each side (and that is pushing it sometimes). I am definitely producing enough milk. All the books I have say to nurse every two to three hours, but I feel like I am force feeding her when I do it that often. Is it okay to wait 4 hours between feedings?
