growth spert?

Just wanted to see if anyone knew the signs of a growth period? Gauge had one before and he mainly ate a lot. Right now he's wanting 8ozs every 4 hrs and he's pretty much always asleep. Am I right to assume that that's what it is?

  • The only time i've really noticed my son having a growth spurt was when he ate 3 8 ounce bottles in 2 hours. He also wakes up in the middle of the night to eat. He's been waking up at 4 for a bottle every night this week & last night he woke up 3 times from 10 til 6.
