Could well be a growth spurt but is he definitely latched on properly? My friend had a lot of probs and has just given up bf at 8wks as she had latch problems and got a lot of bad advice.
If you are not sure, you can get a bf counsellor to help you.

i have been told so by several people, i have big areolas and small nips so it's quite hard to get a good mouthful in, but i usually manage it.
