4 1/2 mo feeding every 1.5 hrs at night. Growth spurt?

Could this be a growth spurt? I hope so as I'm knackered.

Yup. Google or search on MN for four month sleep regression. Big growth AND developmental spurt, so even if your baby wasn't feeding every 90 minutes you'd probably be having disturbed sleep anyway. Nice of them to bundle it all in together! This too shall pass. wine

Snow! I'm with you! Mine is at least every 2 hours and there had been a few night in the last week where it's been every hour!!

I gave up trying to sleep at one point!

Ds is 4 and a 1/2 months smile

Thank you all. Kind of just what I wanted to hear (in that its normal clearly) but also not really what I wanted to hear (in that its killing me!)

Fingers crossed that when this developmental leap is over we'll all start getting a bit more shut eye. Until the next one that is...

Oh Snowboarder my dd is exactly the same! She is 4.5 months, feeding every two hours (but it could actually be more often as the feeds are all blurring together in my sleep-deprived brain) and I am finding it tough. She also has a tiny jagged tooth poking through as well so that is adding to the fun.. But even with all my grumpy tired moments, when I see her getting bigger and stronger I feel really proud of myself for persevering with BFing. Boobs are truly great!
