My 9 day old is wanting to eat every 30 min-1 hr. He will sleep 2-3 hours occasionally but generally only seems to sleep for short periods especially if I am not holding him. How do I stretch out feedings?

Hi, I know it's hard work, but this is pretty normal for a 9 day old! He's building up your milk supply and the first few weeks just feel like constant feeding, but then he'll settle a bit more and you'll be able to stretch the feeds a bit longer :)
