    Default sleepy 8 weeker...

    So LO is 8.5 weeks. The last 2-3 days she ate like crazy and today is really sleepy. Is this normal with "growth spurts" ? Is this a growth spurt?
    Thanks

    Common times for growth spurts are during the first few days at home and around 7-10 days, 2-3 weeks, 4-6 weeks, 3 months, 4 months, 6 months and 9 months (more or less). Babies don't read calendars, however, so your baby may do things differently. Kellymom

    How long is your LO sleeping? Your baby will wake to eat if shes hungry. How is the diaper output?

    I'm not entirely sure, but mine's nearly the same age and is going through that too. Today he's been especially sleepy.

    She has a great output (7 diapers so far today) and she eats to wake...just not "socializing" today.

    I would just keep an eye on her and see how she is doing tomorrow. There's a difference between just sleeping a lot and being lethargic - lethargy can be a warning sign that something else is going on. DD had a growth spurt around 2 months and after each of her growth spurts, she always has a day where she sleeps way more than usual. I figure it's just my reward for making it through another one.
