    Default Tips/support for weathering a growth spurt

    My 8 week old daughter is going on about 36 hours of straight nursing or crying to nurse. I assume this is a growth spurt & I assume it will end at some point. But I'm tired & bored. I've read the whole internet and watched all the tv. How do you ladies get through a growth spurt without losing your mind?

    Any option for visitors to keep you company? I also read a lot, and watched TV, but I really, really, REALLY enjoyed having adult visitors to talk to when my newborn was in a super latched on phase like you are currently experiencing.
    Apologies for the short responses! I'm usually responding one-handed on my smartphone!
