Growth spurt & hard and long day

by Nija

I'm a new mom. My baby is almost three months old, and I have been exclusively breastfeeding.

She has gone through a few growth spurts already and let me just say those days are long and take a toll on your body.

I thought surely she can't still be hungry it's only been ten minutes since I fed her last.

Try to stay calm and patient for this too shall pass. Also, stay hydrated and eat plenty of food.

It's tough when your infant won't take a pacifier and uses you (breast) as one instead.

One night, in particular, I thought if she doesn't stop wanting to breastfeed every ten minutes soon I'm on the verge of crying.

The good news is, those days are few and far between, and we made it through together.

What a great comment.

I agree totally with what you said here. I remember when my little girl was about 3 weeks old, she went through about a week, where she would cluster feed from 8 till 12 in the evenings! It was really frustrating, sore and I was so tired!

But, yes, I'm so glad I kept going...it is so worth it. She breastfed until she was two, and I would not give up that wonderful, bonding experience for anything in this world!

Growth spurt

Wowzers what a day! My little one has been feeding on the boob every 2 hours, falling asleep and waking herself realizing she is not feeding and then wigging out, it's kind like a fussy toddler but I'm exhausted, and my arms and boobs ache.

Thanks to this page though I now know what's going on. Carina.
