My LO will be two weeks Friday. When he was first born, he fed the usual 20-30 minutes every 2-3 hours. But for the past several days, he has literally eaten around the clock. Constantly. And I mean constantly. Last night, he switched back and forth between sides for 4 hours straight with no breaks in between. Today, he only slept one time for more than 10 minutes ALL DAY. He's absolutely inconsolable unless there's a nipple in his mouth. No rocking, holding, wearing, swaddling, swing, or even pacifier (I know, I know, but I was desperate) works. He will scream his head off until I nurse him, even if he just nursed for the past two hours straight. Is this just a growth spurt? I'm at my wits end and exhausted. Poor DH tries to help but LO just screams in his arms.
