Growth Spurt, anti-sleep and eating frenzy!

We are living through the 5-6 week growth spurt right now I do believe. Naps are shorter and nursing is WAY more frequent. My little man is growing too fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone else?

I feel like we're in the midst of a growth spurt more often than we're not! I totally agree about them growing too fast- I'm pretty sure Ronan has just about doubled his birth weight already... he's only seven weeks old!!!

I'm hoping this is a growth spurt. It seems like every 5-7 days we have 2-3 days of almost constant eating. Today it felt like nursing sessions are super long, she won't sleep unless I hold her and when I set her down she wakes up and wants to eat again. It always makes me second guess my supply but when she eats her daily bottle, she drinks 4.5 oz out of 5 and still wants to eat within the hour.

normal feeding is 3 hour give or take. I can't wait until we are back to that for a few days.

Yeah the last 2 nights she has woke in the middle of the night to eat. She's been sleeping from about 1 to 7ish for a couple weeks or so. So up at 3 or 4 to eat makes me hope she is in a growth spurt too

Im not sure if we are going thru a growth spurt or not but Kesler has only gone two 3 hr stretches without feeding he needs to eat every 2 hrs. I am hoping that changes soon and he can go a bit longer we are very sleep deprieved at our house between kesler and SKy.
