How long before the ravenous feedings slow down? I feel like the only thing I do is feed her.

My son is only 11 days old and I look like I've got two black eyes. I know how you feel! I remember from my daughter being tired but I don't think I was THIS tired...then again that was five year ago and I didn't have another kid to contend with! Anyway...it does get better. They start to sleep longer as they get older but it varies for every baby. Naps, if you can get them, are your best friends. :)

Getting more sleep, that usually varies. Some babies sleep through the night (or majority of the night) at just a few weeks old and some may take until more like a year old. You will notice a considerable difference once it's only down to you having to get up maybe once or twice a night. Most babies at 2-3 weeks of age still need to eat every hour and a half to two hours, but by 2 months of age you may notice she can go 2.5 to 3 hours in between feedings.
