3 week growth spurt?

How old was your LO when they hit it?

Bean is 15 days old and for the last day has been very fussy, latched on and off and just generally had issues.  She was born a month early and her latch is awful but we are working on it... I don't think that's it.  No excessive gas, plenty of dipes and otherwise fine - just fussy nursing.  I nurse her on demand and she's been pretty much attached to me every hour for the past 24.  Truth be told I kind of like it.  I love holding her : )

so maybe growth spurt? I hope not, I don't want her to grow up!

"Who is fussy nursing? Me? No, not me!" 

She looks and acts just like her father : )

Yea his third was the worst but you can do this! Just nurse on demand, cosleep if it's safe, and wait it out... it will be over in a few days! Thrn you'll catch a break for a few weeks

We nurse on demand, can't cosleeping because of DH (he has serious issues with sweating and flailing) but she's in our room in her crib.  It doesn't really bother me - just kind of wondering.  She's so cute I can't get mad : ). Plus it was a long hard road to get here with TTC so I'm so happy I don't mind the fussing.  DH helps a lot too (all dipe changes, bathing, cuddling, making food for us).

My dh is a roller lol. So at one point we side carred aiden's crib to our bed so i wouldn't have to get up to feed him. Baby had his space, dh had his and i had almost a full nights rest

The growth spurts were weekly for quite a while with my second. They ran one into the next. I call it constant growth spurt mode.
I don't know if I experienced the madness that Stacy always talks about. It is all a blur to me now.

This was true for us, too.

I love that little preemie face. :) My 35-weeker is now a huge 5 year old!

My son lets me know when a growth spurt is coming. He gets fussy, latches on and off, etc.
