    Question Growth spurt at 4months?

    Just checking to see if there is usually a growth spurt at 4months? Dd2 is sleeping longer even her naps. I mean she has gone from 20min 3 3-4times a day to 1hr nap, 45min, and 2hr nap mid afternoon. It is a nice break, but when she does eat boy does she suck way.

    Thanks

    Our 4 month growth spurt was a rough one! It lasted awhile and I remember being confused bc none of the sites mentioned anything about a 4 mo growth spurt. So, I wasn't really prepared but it came anyway! I remember it well! Good luck and happy milking! to you!

    Ah the 4 month growth spurt I know it well. Its when my baby who was sleeping through the night since 3 weeks started waking up 3 -4 times a night to eat. So if yours is sleeping more enjoy it

    Just as long as I am not going beyond crazy. She has gone from not really sleeping to sleeping...KWIM.

    We've been there recently... I think we're finally at the tail end of it though. She's taking more decent naps instead of many short ones that frustrated me. Heck, she slept for around 2 hours today in one nap, I was thrilled!

    Yes, indeed!!! I thought things were settled into the nicest, most predictable routine, and BOOM! It was like someone traded my sweet, laid-back baby with an alien!! Hang in there--it really DOES end eventually!!

    I just want things to even out with the bf...like the unpredictable feeding schedule she has herself on. I just can not predict a thing anymore...LOL
