gah!!! I'm glad he's feeding as he's not well but seriously!!!??? I have been feeding him constantly all afternoon and evening! he's showing no signs of going to sleep! He normally clusters but this is unreal!

growth spurt?

Maybe growth spurt and comfort! Plus if he's had a temp he might have been a bit a bit dehydrated. He probably isn't always taking in milk and comfort sucking for bits of it. Maybe trying breaking him off so you can have a break.

Is it weird that I sort of miss cluster feeding? Dd is 5 months and hasn't done it in ages.

I do enjoy a little cluster but this was ridiculous! wink DH is trying to get him to sleep now! can't help but think he'll be back with me soon! wink

They supposedly have a growth spurt at 8 weeks. We're just going through this too - not quite so much feeding as that though!

Growth spurt possibly, but if not well he's making up for any missed feeds.

My 6 week old DS did this yesterday - 4pm to 9.30pm, after feeding 2 - 3 hourly for the previous 24 hours. I gave him 40mls of formula in the end, I was knackered.
