My son was on me every hour for an hour when he was that age. It's normal.

It's normal. If you don't like it....then bottle feed. That is pretty much the only way to keep them off the b**b all the time.

You can't. Give her time, she'll get on a better routine.

That's not normal. BF babies should be pooping 4 times a day, if not during every feeding. Are her diapers wet?

she's establishing your milk supply to feed her through a growth spurt at that age.



and her pooping is normal for breastfed babies...

It's probably the dreaded growth spurt. Stick with it mama it'll get easier. If you want hubby to give her a bottle thats fine but use YOUR milk. Formula to breastmilk and back and forth caused my son to get constipated too.. if she hasn't pooped in a week I'll bet her tummy is killing her and she's comfort nursing too

She is NOT eating too much. She will stop eating when she is full.
Why are you nervous?
If it would make you more comfortable, start pumping breast milk into bottles.
Btw, there is nothing wrong with letting dad help a little with the feedings.

It can be normal for breastfed babies to go longer periods between having a bowel movement.
