My DS is 8wks old and appears to be snacking rather than feeding properly. He will feed for 10-12 mins then not be interested - doze for 10 mins then play or go straight o playing (not a big daytime sleeper) and then an hour later want feeding again.

For example, he tared feeding at 9am this morning and I've hardly put him down since. Is there any way I can start pushing him to longer less frequent feeds? He is a hungry little man and I am feeding on demand...?

Yes - he is building up the supply. You would be surprised how much they can take in ten minutes!!

Yep, all normal! Leave him to do what he needs to and enjoy the rest sitting on the sofa. My DD is 8 months now and I really miss it. She's way too busy now !grin

Oh we have been through some monster growth spurts with 8, 12 and 16 hour feeding frenzies! Incredible a little one can eat so much! How often do growth spurts happen?

Wow! I could've written this and this is DS2 so you would think I should know this!
I've been a bit worried today as he has fed hourly for the last 24 hours, but feel a bit reassured now but really don't remember this last time!blush
