When, roughly, are the 'usual' (if there is such a thing) growth spurts? Friend just asked and I haven't a clue. tia

From Kellymom (excellent bfing site):

"Common times for growth spurts are during the first few days at home and around 7-10 days, 2-3 weeks, 4-6 weeks, 3 months, 4 months, 6 months and 9 months (more or less). Babies don't read calendars, however, so your baby may do things differently.

Growth spurts don't stop after the first year - most moms notice growth spurts every few months during the toddler years and periodically thereafter on through the teenage years."
