    i believe my son just went through a growth spurt.
    he was eating massive amounts and just when i thought i couldn't keep up....

    this morning he had a full feeding
    then napped, when he woke up only drank half of his bottle then my mom came over to watch him while i ran some errands.
    he went down for a nap on 10:15 and when I came home at 1145 he was still asleep until 12..
    So he woke up and I tried feeding him...he drank maybe 1 oz then started screaming unconsolably.
    I put changed his diaper, tried putting a pacifier in his mouth, tried putting him in his jumperoo...everything just made him more pissed.
    so at 12:30 i put him back in his crib and he passed out :sleep:

    not even after 30 minutes of being awake.

    he's acting much different than he did for the past 2-3 weeks.
    before he was guzzling 8 oz bottles in one sitting now he is taking 3 oz.
    before he would only go 2 hours between feedings and now he is going 3+.

    could this be the aftermath of a growth spurt?

    Could be... you might start noticing changes in his development now too as a result!

    I thought they went off their milk just before going on a growth spurt? Someone told me that their bodies release a hormone that reduces their appetite just before the growth spurt. Maybe he'll start guzzling again in a few days! I could be completely wrong, it's just what I remember a HV telling me once! xx
