Were only a week old but yesterday and today baby girl wants to eat constantly. I'll nurse and then 20-40 minutes later the lips start smacking and the hands go in the mouth. Can you even have a growth spurt this young?

Very typical newborn behavior. Expect permalatch for another month or two!

Yes! I dealt with a growth spurt at a week, two weeks, three weeks, four weeks, five weeks, and six weeks. Then they went to every month until about four months, then they spread out more.

Normal. I sat and caught up on all the shows I missed during my first fewbweeks. DVR some movies and just sit, nurse, and relax.
