    Default Growth spurt...cluster feeding!!!

    Lo is 3.5 months and has been cluster feeding since 5pm!!! Eating every 1-3 hours during the day. Maybe he'll sleep good after this. I sure hope so.

    Anybody have luck w oatmeal or anything else during these times?

    Oatmeal for you or for baby? Oatmeal for you might help- if the cluster feeding means baby's trying to increase your supply, oatmeal might give you an extra boost. Oatmeal for baby is unlikely to do a thing- this link explains why: http://www.kellymom.com/nutrition/so...ids-sleep.html

    Certainly doesn't hurt to try! Whip some up and enjoy I have OS so I usually try to avoid oatmeal

    Just park yourself on the couch and enjoy some good tv. Someday you'll wish you could sit around and watch your favorite shows or read a book. Instead you'll be chasing a little one around. Enjoy it!

    Oh I wish I could sit and watch tv etc. 26 month old here too
    I just hope this passes soon. Not getting much sleep.

    This is much harder with two kiddos I must say. Fenugreek takes a few days to kick in right?

    I feel ya! My guy seems to be going though it too. He is clusting feeding everynight for the last three nights and only going 1.5 to 2 hours between feeds during the day. I have been having oatmeal, oatmeal cookies and mother's milk tea. It seems to be helping. Good Luck!
