My daughter Alyanna is 6 weeks old. I just started working again at a daycare and I get to bring her with me. Since Thursday when we started she has been sleeping alot more and not eating as much. Or atleast not eating like she did at home. At home she would eat 4oz bottles at usually 7, 11, 3, 7, 11 and then sleep all night. Well, she hasnt been doing that shell eat like 4oz and then 6 hrs later 2oz and then shes sleeping from 730 8 oclock til 730 the next morning, I heard maybe shes going through a growth spurt cause shes sleeping alot but shes not eating as much... Anyone know if this is true??

It was true with both my kids. First they go through a period of cluster feeding...every 1 1/2 to 2 hours and then a period of sleeping alot. Her eating habits should pick up in a few days :)
