    Well, breastfed LO was being rather well behaved at night....feeding 10pm, 4am and 7am.....until Friday. Since then she has been waking every 2 hours without fail and feeding like a nutter. In the day she has been feeding for as much and generally bleating and moaning, fist in mouth, dribbling etc. I don't think it's teeth as my other two children didn't get their first tooth until they were 11 months. Am I right in thinking it's a growth spurt? Hopefully it will pass because I'm totally exhausted...it's like having a newborn again, only heavier!!!

    I feel your pain! Poppy had me awake nearly all night last night, crying. It seems my boob is the only thing that will stop her.... I feel and look like crap today.

    Maybe it is teething? I thought it could start around 3 months? Might be an early starter.

    It could be nursing even though your other 2 didn't get them until much older...my first did at 3mo, 2nd at 5mo and 3rd at 7mo. It could also be a growth spurt though. I would stick it out a week or so and hopefully it's that and she will go back to eating like normal
