    Default Growth spurt at 6 months?

    Thomas just turned six months old and has had an insatiable appetite for the past few days. Is this another growth spurt?

    Most likely. I do think it's common for a GS around 6 months.

    Definitely! Growth spurt at 6 mos is textbook. I found the 6 mos growth spurt to be the most noticeable. Probably, b/c the first several were clustered so close together in those 1st 3 mos.

    LO's birthday is March 23rd and we're having the same thing. I think we've doubled feedings. LO is also nursing on both sides again, which he hasn't done in at least 2 months.

    I was still mostly bfing DS at 9 months (not many solids) and I thought that growth spurt was really rough, too. I thought 6 and 9 months were the most noticeable and longest, too.
