9 week old 1st baby sleep

My 9 week old (10 week in 3 days) sleeps approx 9 hrs (split up) in day then goes to bed at 22:30 at wakes at 06:00. she wakes in day for a feed roughly every 2 hrs then only takes 2 ounces and goes back to sleep. Surely this is not right?? She only has about 1 hr split up into 10 min periods in day when she is awake and playing - rest of time she is crying for food or just grizzly.
Can anyone offer any advice - I am fed up of this - being a mummy is not what I expected :-(

Hi...i'm a bit confused at what you think is wrong?
My dd (7 weeks) does pretty much the same except at night she wakes for 1 feed between 3 & 5... During the day she's fed on demand (breast) every 2-ish hours/10 mins-ish & sleeps in between each one, well the odd half hour here and there of play. Is that not right?? What is it you where expecting?

Sounds like a 10 week old to me...

Not sure what you were expecting- could you tell us how you would like that to change?

Thanks ladies - its my 1st and thought she may have been awake for a little longer! Has been asleep 8 hrs already today and wasnt sure if that was too much (only 2pm and still going) She used to be awake a lot more but maybe she is just growing. If it is normal then thats good!

She is probably going through a growth spurt. Enjoy the peace while she sleeps!
