Growth spurts and grunting

Erika - posted on 07/31/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




My son is 21 weeks old and lately has been having a hard time sleeping. He's waking up suddenly and thrashing his legs around. Is there a five-month growth spurt as it seems as that's what he is going through. He seems to have a growth spurt every month:) Also, he is doing this new grunting thing (actually, it sounds like he has to poo) where he flexs his entire body. He is doing it all the time, especially during his feed right before bed. Does anyone else's child do this? Are they in pain or just try out a new sound? He's doing it so much that we've been stopped on the street by a stranger who suggested that our son was constipated (he's not). hehe

My son goes through growth spurts every month as well!! And actually he started doing that sound too LOL Im not sure what it is there doin but yes it sounds like he is trying to take a poop, I think its because they discovered a new sound. Maybe we can get advice from some other people. Not much help at all, but yes my son does those noises too and no he is not constipated he he
