Baby is a boob snacker. Help!

Trying to space out feedings, my 3.5mo breastfeeds often (like every 1.5hrs) during the day and I'd like for her to eat more, less frequently. She tends to fall asleep or just pop off. Seems to drink more ounces from bottle. I'm not really into aggressive sleep or feed training but would love some tips. We breastfeed 90% of the time. Nights are not an issue. Edit: no, that's not her latch, just a poorly timed photo. Also not trying to institute a training regimen...just curious for little tips. Also the 4mo sleep regression just hit...we're back to every 2-3 hours at night!

That’s normal mama, my son is 8 months and will do the same at times. Breast on demand is the best thing for them

I fully agree. I have 4 and did that with all of them and they all nursed a little differently.

My little girl is 2 months and she’ll do the same thing randomly for like a week at a time....I’ve heard a lot of time that it’s grow spurts like the cluster feeding thing. But she does it a bunch

Every 1.5 hours is normal for a breastfed baby especially that young. Breast is on demand unfortunately lol.... my six month old still wakes every two hours in the middle of the night
