4 Week Growth Spurt?
My baby boy was 12 days overdue, and is currently just over four weeks old. I'm breastfeeding. For the last 6 days (ie from 3w 3d), he has had a voracious appetite. For the week before this he had slept well and fed 2-3 hourly in the day and 3-4 hourly at night. Since six days ago he has fed probably 12-14 times a day. He can literally finish a half hour feed, have milk in his mouth, and be crying for more 10 minutes later. His sleep has been poor. Sometimes 6 or 7 wakes, on a good day 3-4. Am I doing something wrong? Does he actually need all this milk? I'm confused because I thought growth spurts were 2-3 days, so now that this is ongoing I'm wondering if I'm encouraging a new routine to develop. He genuinely won't stop with all his feeding cues and crying until he's eating again though... help!!
