I've been treating my baby with Gentian Violet for a very small case of thrush, today is the 3rd day and I've only used it 1 time a day at around 1-2pm. However, I've noticed that the last 2 nights my baby seems to want to nurse more during the day every 2 - 2 1/2 hours and during the night he seems to want to nurse longer even though he cannot wake for a good feed.
Is it possible that at almost 5 weeks he's starting another growth spurt? It does seem like cluster feeding since today he woke me at 3am and was up fussing until after 5am, again at 7 for a snack, again at 8:40, again at 10ish am, again at noon, again at 1:30, again before 4pm. He's sleeping now, but he wakes and fusses slightly and goes back down. What's going on?
