I have a 5 week old son and he nurses about every hour and a half! The pediatritian and my mom and the parenting books say he should go 3 hrs between feedings. The lactation consultant says to feed him when he wants to eat. I've tried extending the time between feedings but he cries and cries. I really would like him to go longer though so I could have a little break and get something done during the day other than nursing him. Any ideas for getting him to wait without being so upset?
