Re: He's on all the time!

Not only is weighing the baby the only way to know what they're getting -- only doing so once doesn't really tell you much. If you were really paranoid, you could weigh over every feed for 24hrs, but that would STILL only be an average. They'll take much more at some feeds than at others.

Regardless, what you describe is perfectly normal. Fear not -- while they don't start nursing less OFTEN for awhile, they get much much more efficient so you're not spending your whole life with that baby to the breast.
