Has anyone else’s baby gone through a mega hungry growth spurt at 6 months? My daughter seems to have dived into one with no warning. I can’t get her off the boob today or last night. I only got about an hours sleep. She’s gone from barely eating half an ice cube worth of food to having four. Please tell me this is a phase, a short phase!!

Defintely a phase. How is she today?

Last night was the same as the night before waking every 2-3 hours only sleeping if she was next to me in bed. I’d gotten used to her sleeping through or only waking once!
She ate loads of lunch (still only doing one meal a day). It’s like someone just flipped a switch and she’s changed overnight! It is comforting to hear it’s probably a phase!!

Have you heard of the wonder weeks? This sounds exactly like my lb's behaviour during leap 5 which is roughly around 6 months. Your lo will probably switch back to normal just as suddenly so keep up the hard work and you'll both be through it soon xx
