Wow. DD2 is 10 days old. She started feeding yesterday at 2am. Still going! This is cluster feeding, right?

I feel like I've been hit with a train. I am surprised how physically demanding this is (I am also recovering from a post birth infection - got home from hospital on Sun).

Sorry, 2pm yesterday not 2am this morning.

It probably is cluster feeding to increase your supply a bit. And maybe she enjoys sleeping at the breast (which is fine too). However you can help her to transfer milk efficiently by checking positioning is as good as possible, trying breast compressions and switching sides.
