My baby is 2 weeks old and seems to want to eat all the time. Sometimes it's less than 2 hours apart?!

In brief: Nutrition vs nurture
Babies are wired to feed anytime.
&often they begin to look at feeding time as their best nurturing time too.Bf kids are worse than btl. Try feeding as baby wakes from nap, keep busy until tired & let nap again, feed as baby wakens, try to set a 2.5hr minimum interval by providing more distractions. As long as baby is wetting diapers every 4-6 h they don't need more feeds.
