could this be a growth spurt?

My daughter is 5 weeks & 4 days. She is acting extremely fussy. She hasn't sleep longer than 30 minutes at a time the past 24 hours. She usually takes 4 ounces of formula every 2.5 hours but the past day she wants 4 ounces every 1 - 1.5 hours. Her diapers are normal and she doesn't have a fever. I'm wondering if this is just a growth spurt? I don't want to over feed her. Is that possible? She isn't spitting up at all. I've tried giving her a pacifier and as soon as she realizes it's not food she spits it out.

Sounds like a growth spurt.

You can not overfeed a newborn.  If you give them too much they will spit up or projectile vomit all over you.  It sounds like the first growth spurt for sure as well as possible teething.

Sounds like a growth spurt. Feed on demand and nap when you can!

Perfect timing for the 6 week growth spurt.  (:  My little one nursed every hour for that one.

Definition of a grow spurt. It will pass!! Measure her weight and length daily to double check.
