    Default Growth spurt?

    This is multi question post:
    my DS is just getting over bronchitis & slight ear infection. he is feeling better but i think it may be coinciding w/ a growth spurt. he is feeding every 2 hours. it's been a few days and he seems to have regulated himself back to eating every 3 hrs...except for his nighttime feedings.
    normally the first time he goes down he'll sleep for about 4 hours then eat, then 3 hrs/eat, 3or 2 hours/eat.
    he has been in daycare for about a month..so that isn't so new anymore.
    can't tell if perhaps he is just not getting enough to eat since he is falling asleep or if it's a comfort thing.

    Anyone have this issue or have any light to shed?

    I had thought about giving him 3.5 oz of EBM instead of the 3 oz i normally give him.

    also wondering how many have children sleeping thru the night..not having to feed. how is this possible?
    I figure when he is ready to sleep longer he will. i am making sure that when he is fussing it is to eat and not dirty diaper or paci...so what gives?

    thanks for your help

    It's normal for nursing and sleeping patterns to change/evolve throughout baby's first year. Sleep disturbances are especially common in babies in the four month age range. Here's some info on that:

    HTH!
