Are all babies feeding more in this heat or just mine?

She's three months and I wondered if it's a growth spurt, but then realised it's bloody hot so maybe she's just keeping hydrated. We've had more nappies than usual too smile

Mines 2 weeks and was on/off every 2 minutes from 5-9pm this evening wine

Could be either or both! Lots of nappies is probably a good thing as she isn't dehydrated. Make sure you follow her lead and drink plenty too.

If you're drinking more it makes sense that she's drinking more too... Hot and sweaty.

Hot and sweaty is right! Yes I'm drinking more too, had very uncomfortable boobs last night and had to wake her up to feed!

I read a good tip on here about putting a muslin in the crook of your arm to feed. I'll be trying that tomorrow. Clammy sticky babies are not easy to handle.

Good tip danger!
Yesterday my DS was hot and grumpy. I was hot and grumpy. He was definitely feeding lots, I'm guessing they get thirsty too!
