Breastfeeding Advice ?

So little Abigail is doing great. She's gaining weight, nursing well, etc.

The trouble I'm having is that there is no "off switch."

You know when you get to the sleepy "milk coma", the little baby relaxes when she's full and falls asleep? Abigail doesn't seem to do that. If I get her to sleep, she'll sleep very well 3 to 5 hours straight. However, sometimes if we start nursing it can go on for over 90 minutes. Sometimes at night we can hit a bad patch and she'll want to nurse for almost 3 hours straight.

Has this happened to anyone else? A completely normal nursing pattern, plenty of wet diapers, etc but a kid who either sleeps sounds for hours or wants to snack for hours?
