Yep, another growth spurt! Not fair after having one at 3 months, but it's the last one until about 6 months. It should be done within a week and all should be back to normal if not having the nursing spread out a little more. It will be okay!

I also think around 4 months their "bubble" expands--they get distracted during feedings and tend to take in less milk. So then maybe they compensate by eating a lot more frequently. I don't know if this is whats happening with your DS but I have heard this is the age for that to happen. My DD is 5 months and has started to get very distracted during feedings. She pulls off and sometimes I think she's done but then she'll scream at me and I realize she was just distracted.

oh yes! ariana is about to turn five months, and has been doing just that for the past several weeks! she acts like she's all done, until the second i put up the boob, then she realizes "hey, i wanted that!" and will start screaming till i whip it back out!

on the up side, she's been at the breast so much lately, even more than usual, that my milk production is up significantly and we've only had to supplement with two bottles daily the past week or so!
