Relax and go with the flow. It's normal, it's what they do. You will live, and so will your baby. Nurse while napping, co-sleep, wear your baby.

Yeah, but better than the alternative of no growth.

This is what I think about the 3 week growth spurt. You got this miserable "starving" 3 week old at exactly the same time your new mommy high wears off and torture level sleep deprivation is hitting. :-(

He was doing the latch, unlatch, cry, relatch cycle. We finally fell asleep at 530am, then I woke up at 630am to wake DH up for work, let the dogs out and feed them. Feed DS again, fell asleep for a little bit then DD came in at 8:30 and I've been awake since. But she's fed and getting some unnecessary screen time so I'm gonna take a nap.

Mine was born August 13. Maybe if our 3 week one is so awful the 6 week one won't be as bad. Fingers crossed, knocking on wood.

Hopefully!!! I remember the same thing happening with DD so I at least was more prepared. I don't remember any of her other growth spurts being to bad, so maybe he'll be similar.
