They nurse that much to establish a good supply. They're putting in an order for a healthy supply. even tho it seems like a lot, it's so worth it! You get more sleep once you learn to nurse lying down. My.nighttime "waking" consists of open eye, pop baby on, close eye.
All that nursing the first few days is a good excuse to keep your recovering hiney in bed and recover.
And your older kiddo will snuggle in bed with you. It's a good way to reconnect.
