Wow, I remember those crazy early growth spurt days, and I only have one little guy! Let me just say that I am sure you are doing better than you think you are.
My best suggestion is to give yourself permission to take a break. There were a couple of days when I was really feeling at the end of my rope and simply let my poor little guy stay safely in his crib for a bit (after I was sure he'd been fed and cleaned) while his going-crazy mother did something - anything - else. You are both going to need you later, so there has to be something left of you! You're doin' good, Mama!
I agree with the posters who said it sounds like a growth spurt. You've got to just ride them out! You've got a lot of great advice already, but I didn't see that anyone had addressed your concern about whether you were making enough milk. Here's an article that can help you determine that:
