    It's normal :) They have a big growth spurt around four months so it's probably that.

    Yes normal... in fact this is the stage that a lot of mommies feel their babies want to wean because their 'milk' isn't enough. They just seem so hungry all the time as you describe.

    But this is truly a normal growth spurt - just as they had when they were newborns. Just try to get through it, and keep that milk coming for her. A baby's tummy and digestive tract is physiologically too immature for much else - another month to 2 months will make a huge difference for their eating!

    Sam was the same...and it didn't end! It was only during the day though, but he was still feeding at least every 2 hours at 5 months x
