  • They tend to want to eat more, then they sleep more while actually growing. Generally.

    Kids have their own growth spurt patterns. Some in 2s and some in 3s. I've read that 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 2 months, 6 months, 8 mo... is normal. But my kids were more like 3 wks, 6wks, 3mo, 6mo, 9mo...

    The problem with schedules is that what works for a period of rapid growth doesn't work the rest of the time, and vice versa.

  • the major growth spurts occur at 2, 3, and 6 weeks, then 3 and 6 months. They will want to eat constantly.(For my girls it was almost every 45 mins to an hour for a day). Then they would would sleep really good the next day.
