Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

default Am I feeding him too much?

Post by JaneJayandBaby on Tue Aug 26, 2008 11:50 am

My lil man was born at 37 weeks. He weighed 5lbs 9oz. At 1 week old he was 5lbs 2oz.

He is now 5 weeks old. At 3 weeks he gained 12oz ina week and at 4 weeks he gained 9oz in a week and was 7lbs 9oz.

Had him weighed today a week and a day later and he is now 10lbs 7oz!!!
Thats like a 3lbs weight gain!!!

Is that normal? Is he a greedy baby? x
