Growth spurts?

[deleted account] ( 2 moms have responded )

So, I think my little one (10 weeks) is going through another growth spurt.... She is super clingy and was on a great schedule and now has a hard time sleeping through the night. She is fussy most of the time which is no fun for both of us :) I also notice her stretching A LOT and is back to eating about every 2 hours, whereas before she was eating every 3 or 4 hours! Could she be having growing pains?

Does this sound familiar to anyone? :)

Im not sure about growing pains..... but it definitely sounds like it could be a growth spurt!

Yeah, sounds like a growth spurt. It shouldn't last too much longer. If it does, you might want to check your diet in case her fussyness has something to do with what you are eating. That's the only other thing I can think of. Hang in there! Think of how quickly babies become DOUBLE what they were when they were born!

Just a thought -- I noticed my baby was a little clingier and took a LONG time nursing when I first went back to work. Are you back already? It could be that, too.
