    Default 12 week Growth Spurt

    DS is 11.5 weeks old, I have heard there is a 12 week growth spurt, just wondering what this involves. Will bub feed more, sleep more etc?

    Also how long does it last?

    Default 12 week Growth Spurt

    Hi,
    Ours lasted about 4 days, she was very fussy and clingy and fed around the clock. Back then DD was on 3-4 hour feeds and she wanted to be fed every 2-3hrs this included overnight (she was only waking up got two feeds) Very tiring, but just like that it was over
    Just go with flow. We are currently going through a 6 month growth spurt - she is a hungry little monster!

    Good luck

    Thanks so much for responding. I haven't noticed any big changes yet :-) Hope your LO is doing well with her growth spurt & it's not too tiring on you.

    Default 12 week Growth Spurt

    My DS happened a little early at 11 weeks. He basically fed nearly every half hour to hour through the day. But still slept through the night. In between feeds he was either cranky and fussy or asleep. He also didn't smile or have his happy kicking playful moods as much. It only lasted about 2 or 3 days. Good luck
