The Growing Baby

Baby is growing!

Can you say GROWTH SPURT?

Hello Cluster Feeding! Oh my Lord. This child ate non-stop this past weekend. (I will say that this is one of the few times that I am actually happy that I’m not able to breastfeed.) An hour would go by and he would demand ANOTHER 7 ounces.

Growth spurts in new babies typically happen around weeks 3, 6, and 9. And then again around months 3, 6 and 9.

Though growth spurts, like all things baby – varies from child to child. After this weekend’s feeding frenzy, he has spent the last 2 days asleep. He is waking up to eat and even then isn’t really that interested in it – because, well he wants to go back to bed. Yesterday alone, I clocked him awake for a total of 1 hour as the longest time his little peepers stayed open.

This growing things is really showing. Zeke’s looks are changing. He is no longer looking like an infant, more and more looking like a baby. He has put on some weight, and the dude is just about too long for his 0-3 months clothes.


Another baby growing up. Soon he will be talking back and then before you know it moving out. I’ll enjoy this time while I can, if he would just wake up!

    My daughter seems to be in one long growth spurt! Every day her fingers reach a little bit further and she kicks me a little bit lower. Realistically, she pretty much followed the above “estimation schedule”. She is non stop eating now so I’m expecting this weekend to be a restful one. (I can only hope…*I* need my sleep!!!)
