    My little girl is 6 days old and for the majority of the day and night all she wants is to be fed. Does this stop and become less often? Its really tiring:(

    Unfortunately its normal as they build up your supply but it does settle. Most women stop because they think they are not producing enough but babies "order" milk by suckling. Just make sure her latch is good but if she is gaining weight/producing nappies, get dvds, snacks and cuddle and fees as much as she wants.
    Now at 3 months my boy feeds for 5-10 minutes mostly. You are doing very well! X

    It wont. I promise. First 6 weeks are the hardest. Around day 10 they have a big growth spurt. Try not to worry about getting stuff done, enjoy cuddles. Its the best gift you can give to your child. Before you know it, they will be running around
