I knew this was a 3 week old by the title alone. The 3 week growth spurt has been my low point with all 4 of mine. Nurse on demand, yes even if he just demanded 40 minutes earlier. He's building your supply. Any interruption or supplementing will set you further back.

DD's lasted four days.  She's four and a half weeks old now and it's better but she still eats a lot! She's also gained almost two pounds so I guess she's growing.  It's worth it mama!!

But but but- there's also a toddler and an elementary schooler and a house that has to be taken care of....... Why can't he eat like that during the day?
