Baby won't feed

Hi,

My 8-week old baby hasn't breastfed for 3 hours now , which is a long time for her, particularly so in the evening. She did show mild cues of being hungry earlier but when i brought her to my breast, she started fussing and crying. I tried to calm her down and tried again but the same thing happened. She then went to sleep for 30 minutes, then same thing happened again. She is calm the rest of the time (she s in my arms, relaxed right now). I read threads about babies getting fussy during or after feeds but not before. I am getting worried she ll be very hungry soon and work herself up, making feeding even harder. She shows no sign of being ill like temperature,etc. What should i do?

Thanks

She might just be spacing her feeds out a bit more. 3 hours without a feed isn't really that long. I'm told that some babies go 8 hours at night without a feed (not that either of mine did grin)
