no, perfectly normal smile

an early 3 week growth spurt maybe?

your baby is ordering up the milk - your supply will need this stimulation so there is enough milk to feed your baby.

hormones at night are wonderful signals for your body to produce more milk.

hang in there - it will get easier

2.5wks old is still very young and babies don't settle into any sort of pattern for a while.
My DS had a couple of nights when he was really little of being up all night wanting to feed and crying constantly. It is really really very hard and I cried for what felt like hours. But what you have to remember is that it isn't forever, it will prob only be for one night at a time. Make sure you have support, even handing your LO to someone else for five minutes can make all the difference.

You are not doing anything wrong, feed on demand and it will settle down. It might have been a growth spurt!
Sleep in the day today whenever LO naps. Forget the housework, it can wait.

If it carries on then make sure you ask the HV for advise. Chin up.
