    Is there one?

    My DD has been constantly hungry since yesterday, I'd almost think my milk supply was low if it wasn't for my full boobs and them spraying milk in my DD's face .
    She's never been feeding this much before!

    Yet last night she slept 7 hours with only 1 feed!

    Shes happy and alert so doubt shes sick.

    There's a growth spurt around 9 weeks, but that's just an approximate timeline, so that's probably what it is. It should pass in a few days.

    Do you think it could be the heat? My LO has been the same though think he is due a 6 week growth spurt!

    Heat? No , we live in FL and are always inside with airconditioning on ;)
    There is a growth spurt @ 6 weeks , but didnt know if there was one around 8 weeks too.
