Hi everyone - hoping that someone can give me some gems of advice... My gorgeous 18 day old little boy is going through a growth spurt and all he seems to want to do is eat eat eat! I am demand breast feeding and to be honest it is making the whole process really quite stressy. Before this spurt began he was feeding at 3 hour intervals and waking up twice during the night (too good to be true I know!) ...last night he fed for an hour and a half (!) and then he hardly slept during the night wanting fed every hour/hour and a half for an hour at a time and I feel totally exhausted. He is also much fussier during his feeds, pulling on my nipple, coming off and going back on again, not to mention the increase in his poos! If he had his own way he would feed all day long!! I so want to give him the best and if the truth of the matter is I need to feed feed feed then so be it but does anyone have any experience of this, what did you do? how long did the growth spurts last?
