6 week old baby seems to be eating less

Hi - first of all, she seems healthy and happy, and I THINK she's recently had a wee growth spurt. Recently (last couple of days) she seems to come off the boob way earlier than the usual two or three or four hour sessions and goes to sleep. As I say, she seems happy enough, but as a new mum I'm finding ANY change in the 'norm' a bit of a worry.

Do you have any words of wisdom on this?

Babies do change their feeding patterns, McSnail. In the absence of any other signs of illness or distress, you can normally trust the baby to take what she wants in the time she wants...otherwise babies would never move on from newborn behaviours
