    Crankiness
    Clingyness
    Off food
    Wanting extra food
    Tired
    Not tired
    Basically just not themselves

    Is there something you're worried about?

    Thankyou!

    Oh not worried so to speak, just wondering why i have an evil baby all of a sudden haha. He is 10 weeks today and just not his usual self, constantly fighting his sleep, waking up every 2-3 hours at night for a feed, went off his food, now feeding every 2 hours.. Pretty much all you just mentioned!

    Gahhhhhhhhh i hate growth spurts!

    I hear you! Growth spurts are pretty demanding. I also found that my DD can sometimes during a growth spurt, sleep more. Good thing is they dont last too long!!

    Hey My DS recently went through a growth spurt. Biggest indicator was the crankiness. He's normally so lovely . But yeah he likes being babied as well when he's going through a spurt. He goes off his food a little bit as well and comfort sucks on his bottle.

    When he's teething he's the same... but with drool

    I found it went for 3-4 days then suddenly he could do something he couldn't do before
    Like he'd learnt something in that growth time

    My answer, go easy on yourself in those times
    It's alot harder to get anything done

    DD wakes more frequently at night for feeds during a spurt. That's the only real indicator for us - sometimes she has a couple of bigger day sleeps as well.

    When she goes through a development milestone she can get really cranky/whingy and frustrated. She was a nightmare when she was trying to work out rolling!
