    DD does this every once in a while. She'll just have a day when I can't keep her awake for anything. As long as he is eating well I would not worry. Enjoy it! Do you have any bon bons? Put your feet up and relax!

    yeah that's what I was thinking but he is so big already! I also thought he only fed about 4 times today!!! granted the sessions lasted about 1hr each he normally only eats for 15 mins on each side! so he doubled the lengtths but cut back the number of feedings! is that normal? I am waiting to see how he does tomorrow but what happen today?

    it is really hard to judge what might be happening on the events of one day alone. gather evidence from a couple or more days, and then see. If I were you I would just keep a journal of his eating/sleeping so you can see if there is a pattern. It really just does sound like a growth spurt
