Great she is settling for you. You have to remember it wont last forever. That mantra has got me through some bad days and weeks.
Hopefully she was just having a growth spurt!

So I think it must have been a growth spurt since she has put in 170grams in 5 days and has grown 3cm since she was born just over 2 weeks ago. She has been much better today. And the health nurse said it is possibably something im eating and I have worked it out then when I drink milk she gets an upset stomach. Fingers crossed for more happy days. Thanks everyone

I agree with whoever said to get a copy of The Happiest Baby on the Block DVD. It helped us SO much. Especially the "shhhh" settling technique. You can look it up on YouTube (search for Harvey Karp). The DVD is available from Amazon I think, or try EBay.
Also my mum taught me that at that age, you have to burp them and it can take ages (like, half an hour!). Don't put bub down until they've given you a couple of really good burps!
Sounds like you're confident with feeding but if you're not sure bubs is getting enough maybe talk with your maternal health nurse. That was a cause of my DD being very unsettled and once that was sorted out she settled really well (she was refusing the breast so we had to switch to bottles).
And like others have said, this stage won't last for long. Congratulations by the way! Sounds like you're doing a fabulous job!
