Baby growth spurts

My baby is four weeks and MUST be in the middle of a growth spurt. How long do these days of ravenous feedings and shortened periods of sleep last before stabilizing again?

  • It should be anywhere form 3 days to a week. Keep checking for fevers, rash, or any other irritants(gas). If it continues or worsens, might check with the MD about possibly changing the formula.

  • babies have growth spurts at 2, 6, 12, 18, 24 weeks and every six weeks so on and so on.
