3 month old - eating so often?
My DD is 3 month 3 days old. She is exclusively breastfed. She was eating every 2 - 2,5 hours so far during the day. At night she wakes up also every 2-3 hours. But last several days she eats every hour during the day - exactly every hour. I can't make her wait even 2 hours. What's wrong with us?

She's probably going through a growth spurt. I wouldnt worry.

Growth spurt and she is increasing your milk supply as she is growing--the more often she feeds, the more milk you'll end up having.

Yes, i've heard about those spurts, and do not mind if it's the case. But how do i know that she is not overfeeding herself, or simply use it as pacifier?

babies are very smart. they do not eat for comfort or depression like adults do. They eat cause they are hungry. It's as simple as that.

Its a growth spurt. My little girl is 11 weeks tomorrow (sunday). I have read ALL about this wonderful 3 month growth spurt. Most women have posted it lasting about 7 days. She will be doing her growth spurt during my first week back at work
Good luck and let me know how long the feedings last. I am exclusively breastfeeding too
