Reassure me that this is normal

I'm going to the breastfeeding clinic on Wednesday so I'll know what his weight gain is at that point, but in the meantime, I'm just looking for a bit of reassurance.

DS was doing the every 2-3 hour nursing thing, sometimes even every hour. For the last week or so he's extended that to more like every 4-5 hours and at that point I'm so full and engorged, he will only eat on one side (cuz he's getting a ton) so I end up having to pump on the second side - where I get at least 5-6 oz (sometimes more).

Is it normal for them to start spreading the feedings out that much at only 2 months? I'm a bit Click here to enlarge about it...

He definitely seems content and he's having lots of wet diapers. He just recently started going about 2-3 days between BMs, though, but then he has a day where it's a messy diaper with every feeding (semi-explosive, too) and sometimes even in between feedings. He's become even more of a chunky monkey, so that seems to be ok, too. I guess I'll know more on Wednesday when I see what his weight gain is like.

Is he having 5 soaking wet diapers or more a day? Is he gaining about 1/2 oz a day?

My dd is doing this, too, and she is just over 2 months. Unlike my older Dd, who nursed every 45 minutes for 6 months!
