    Default Is this a growth spurt?

    Chloe is 4wks today. And oh my goodness she has been nursing EVERY hour since last night! She seems a little extra fussy also. Could this be a growth spurt? Also how long do they last?

    Hi Sarah...every time I have an issue, you have usually already asked the question I wonder if it's cause our LOs were born a day apart. Collin was 4 weeks yesterday, and the night before he started cluster feeding...did the same thing last night, and this morning. I was wondering if it's a growth spurt. He didn't really seem to hit the 3 week spurt you hear about. So I'm also wondering how many days these spurts last for. Just when I think my nipples are getting better, they start getting sore again after so much nursing. I still think I'm not quite latching him right. I just checked out DR Jack Newman's website and got some pointers I'm going to give a try. Hang in there Mommy...at least we're not going through it alone

    Sounds like it! I have no idea how long they are supposed to last typically. Hang in there!

    Jennifer that's so funny! When you latch your LO do you also hold your breast well he is nursing? That helps me a lot!

    Hi there,

    Hang in there, growth spurts pass! I noticed they lasted a few days at the most, for me. Keep up the good work!
