Growth spurt?

Hey ladies,

So yesterday Nicholas nursed.. and nursed.. and nursed! Pretty much sucked me dry! Then bed time came.. I laid him down around 8(after he ate for a few hours off and on, I guess the cluster feeding but during the day) and I HAD to wake him up around 12:30 to eat.. he did not get up.. It was nice to get all that sleep in, but that seems to long for him to go with out.. and even then he did not eat all that much(well normal amount, just not a lot like that day).. and AGAIN I had to kinda get him up around 5:30 to nurse again...he at and is back sleeping now. Is this just a growth spurt? Eat Eat EAT.. then SLEEP SLEEP SLEEP?

Re: Growth spurt?

My dd2 went through a phase like that. No idea if it's normal or not. She wasn't there long though and soon I was missing the sleep again. I'm remembering now how hard it is having a baby nurse all day- making me nervous for when this baby comes.

The first growth spurt is at 7-10 days so I'd guess yes.

Re: Growth spurt?

Id say its a growth spurt. My baby was born on a wednesday and by that fallowing monday he was 1/2 inch longer. And he only ever lost 6 oz while in the hospital and since then maintained and has even gained some. I have a fat boy on my hands
