I am a first time mom. At aroung 6 weeks i realized my baby had a growth spurt she wasn't feeding at all and ate night and day. At 7 weeks it all stopped and she started sleeping at 10 pm to wake up at 1 am and then again at 5 am to feed. Shw would go back to sleep to wake up at 9. Suddenly at 11 weeks she switched. She goes to bed at 8 wakes up at 11 or 12 pm to feed and then....The marathon begins...She wakes up every hour and a half to feed. She is 12 and a half weeks now and I am exhausted...For almost two weeks i barely have any sleep.She is in a good mood but drinks so frequently at night! I thought that they should be eating less at around this age? And is it normal that the growth spurt is lasting that long?
I need to talk to somebody and get some BF mama hugs. My husband works evening shifts and its getting so tough for me.
