Why is my 13 week old baby demanding 7 ounces every hour or so?! No sick either!

    URGH! Since yesterday my baby has been screaming until I give in and give her a feed - but she is taking 7 ounces every hour/ hour and 15 mins! She isn't throwing it up but It's driving me mad - everyone keeps telling me to let her cry and make her wait 3 hours between feeds because I am over feeding her - but I hate hearing her scream the place down. Why is she doing this - is this our life from now on?!

    Babies do go through a growth spurt around this time, I feed on demand but breast feeding so not sure how much she gets.

    Louie's around the same age and he's been bfing a lot more the last few days so I would assume it's a growth spurt.

    It will be the 3 month growth spurt, it is a big one. It will calm down again soon

    Alex has just been through a growth spurt and at times, I felt like banging my head against the wall! It WILL calm down though, so stick with it :)
