  • Same here, mom2twobabes.

    But with the addition of a lot of fussiness. Infants Tylenol and warm baths were a must.

  • Breastfed babies will nurse a lot. If it is your first baby you may be concerned you don't have enough milk. You may get engorged. You may feel all flat from the baby nursing so much. This is all normal and will pass.

  • all babies will eat more. They are hungry and need more to support their growth. they will sleep a lot too.

    My daughter gets fat. she gets fat cheeks and a full looking tummy then all of a sudden it goes away and she looks really thing but she's really long! Then her eating and sleeping goes back to normal.

  • Bottomless pits and sleepy babies. That is the true signs. At least it is with my daughter. She does not have the fussiness.

  • This is a good time to take extra calcium. Baby gets everything they need even if your body has to steal it from your teeth. And if you grind your teeth at night, that is exactly what your body is doing.
