i dont know wtf is going on. hes been barely sleeping, and SUPER fussy. hes nursing nonstop. he jsut had his 3 month spurt around the 13th of last month. he will be four months on the 16th. hes acting like i dont have enough milk for him. its scaring me because this is how he acted when he wasnt getting enoguh before. we did a weigh feed weigh not that long ago and he got over 2 ounces from both breasts. is it possible that he is having his 4 month spurt early?? but his last growth spurt he slept A TON and now hes barely sleeping at all... whats going on??

Teething would be my first thought. Nursing non-stop is fine. :) How are dipes?

diapers are very good today, the past couple days they were somewhat lighter for him but they still well exceeded the minimum.  he was showing teething symptoms before, but those symptoms seemed to have stopped. hes not drooling anymore like he was and hes not munching his hands. hes just SCREAMING and he keeps sucking sucking, pulling off, screaming,s ucking, pulling off screaming. he only gulps down milk from one side. :-/

Has he been given any bottles lately?

At four months milk supply regulates.  It's also a developmental phase where sleep patterns change and babies typically become much more aware of their surroundings.  All these changes are probably unsettling him.  Highly unlikely that it has anything to do with your supply, more just frustration at letdown slowing down because of supply regulation and the developmental "stuff".

well i finally got him down for a nap, he slept for 2 hours, then he was awake abou a hour and a half and now hes asleep again. hes  cluster feeding when awake, i think for some reason hes hit the 4 month growth spurt early

Normal stuff, really. I don't see anything at all to be worried about. Honest, worry when they DON'T drive you crazy.

Mama, he is a baby, stop stressing, he cries, he screams, he parties, he eats, he's unpredictably predictable.
Your doing great, start trusting yourself, and your body.
