Should you be feeding your baby? And when do they start eating less frequntly?

My Lo tends to go 1-2 hours before her next feeding and then feeidng for an hour. She used to feed for 30 mins every 1 1/2. Is this normal? I feel lke Im not feeding her enough. I guess Im just used to how It used to be before so I worry....I probably feed her about 10 times a day....

At 2 months, Danny would nurse for 30 minutes every 2 hours or so, and cluster feed in the evening. He is now nursing every 3 hours for 20 minutes, sleeping the majority of the night.

If you're feeding on demand, you're letting your baby eat when she is hunger, which is the perfect way to go. Her nursing patterns will change a lot over the next year, so going longer between nursing or nursing for longer or shorter periods of time isn't anything to be alarmed about.
