    He's gone back to every two hours :hissy: for well over a week and he's 7 weeks old. by the time I have changed him he only naps for an hour before he wants some dinner again and Im getting pretty exhausted. Does it ever get any better? Am I doing something wrong?

    Poppy was like this last week. She ate constantly and i worried it was my supply, but when i squeezed my boob after a feed milk still came out.

    turns out it was a growth spurt. She got weighed at the end of the week and had put on tonnes of chub. So probably just that, as it's around the same time.

    Just when you think you have a routine down with LO, they change it. LOL

    Definitely must be going through a growth spurt. :hugs:
