Growth spurt
Dec 23, 2008
... I have read that growth spurts tend to occur in the 3 week, 6 week, and 3 month. I know that there is no normal or usual when it comes to babies, but Liam is 2 weeks old and will not stop eating. Could he be going through a growth spurt already? ... (4 replies)
... I just wanted to let you know that you are DEFINITELY not alone in this! My little guy will be 6 weeks on Monday, and he seemed to have had a growth spurt last week.This week he hasn't been eating quite as much, and since I am pumping and bottle feeding him, I now have WAY too much milk! ...

... at 3 weeks, 6 weeks, 9weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 monts, etc. She had huge growth spurts. This sounds pretty normal to me. Expect this every 3 weeks until she is about 3 months and then about every 3 months. Docs will tell you that babies can have growth spurts at any time though. ... (3 replies)

... months.Babies usually start eating more the week before esp. breastfed ones to build milk supply for their growth spurt. So I would say it's pretty normal. ... (2 replies)
... My DS went through what I think must have been a pretty big growth spurt. He was around 6 weeks old. He ate ALL day long, and most of the night. And i'm not kidding he was just non stop eating, and would only break for a nap. It was exhausting. ... (8 replies)

... LOL... usually a week or two. I was bf'ing through that growth spurt, and I was so close to quitting. The only thing that kept me bfing was the fact that it was actually quicker to pull out a boob than to make a bottle, esp. ... (5 replies)
... There is a growth spurt at 6 weeks, so its normal for them to want to eat more then. Have you tried a binky when he acts hungry? ... (6 replies)
... Everyone tells me that the 6 week mark is the hardest. They tend to shfit things around on you just when you get used to some sort of routine, LOL. Also 6 weeks is a time that they usually go through a growth spurt, could be that. I am going through all of this right now too. ... (8 replies)
... It is nice to know others have gone through this too! I spoke with someone yesterday who said his baby did this also at 6 weeks. Maybe it is a growth spurt. I know that once she fights for so long and is so overtired and cranky then it is impossible to put her to sleep. Yesterday was a better day though. ... (14 replies)

... I agree, don't supplement!! I had to for medical reasons (DD had a possible enlarged kidney and was dehydrated because of mistakes I made) and it was the WORST thing I did. Now, at 12 weeks, I think I have finally gotten away from supplementing (but not without effort - pumping, herb supplements, and NURSING!). It is TOTALLY normal for your baby to eat voraciously at this... (3 replies)
