Growth spurt or what??

My son will be 3 weeks old tomorrow and he's literally been feeding CONSTANTLY all day. It feels like I haven't had a break yet and it's almost 8pm. He cries and cries whenever I pull him off so I've just left him on. I know he's been getting enough because his diaper count is excellent.

Is this normal? I'm assuming he's going through a growth spurt. I'm a FTM so any insight would be great. :-)

Yikes, I hope so! With as much as he's been feeding today I'm worried he'll have a tummy ache or something. :-(

No worries. Breast milk is digested fast and it is the ideal food. Until 12 weeks or so they habve LOTS of growth spurts so get a good book, the remote, food and drink and enjoy the ride!

Yep, definitely a growth spurt! Expect at 3 and 6 weeks and 3 and 6 months, or as many BFing moms concur, the whole first year pretty much equals growth spurts :-) Hang in there mama!

An entire year of growth spurts sounds really intimidating lol but I'm ready for it! :-)

Lol, definitely wasn't my intention to intimidate! :-) There is a lot of growing in the first year, but it's also very rewarding and you CAN DO IT!
