Why do infants cluster feed during breastfeeding? How to get through it easily? It can be frustrating. Sometimes baby wants to eat every hour for 5 hr

In brief: A TestofYour Breasts

Well, if it's a baby boy, it needs no explanation.
But overall, this is not a worrisome event. Probably means that the baby is taking in small amounts intermittently either due to low milk flow or small swallows or both. Best not to worry and use it as a time to "bond" with him (or her). Usually ends my 1-3 months. If it doesn't or if there are obvious problems feeding, check with your doctor
