Hi all

I am a FTM and my little one turned 6 weeks old yesterday 😊
I have noticed over the last few days that he is feeding more frequently. Before this, he was going around 3.5/4 hours between feeds (bliss!) but it's gone back to around every 2.5 hours now.
He is also a little more unsettled when I put him down to sleep during the day (absolutely fine at night), although sleeps brilliantly when he's being held!

Is this typical for a 6 week growth spurt? How long can I expect this to go on for? Will things settle back down and will he begin to go longer between feeds again?

Thanks in advance!

Yep, growth spurt! Mine was unsettled for a couple of days but have seen online so babies having a bad week confused.

Thanks @Ribenaberriesgowoo82 it's already been going on for around 2/3 days so I'm hoping we're near the end of it although I'm not seeing any signs of that just yet!

We had this at about 5 weeks - it was awful - feeding every 2 hours. Thankfully only lasted a couple of days
