feeding and Growth spurts
By now you will be getting to know your baby, this entirely new person, and you will find yourself entering a phase of increased enjoyment, as your baby starts responding more to you. Baby may be waking himself by banging his arms into the side of the bassinette. It may be time to move him to a cot.
Growth spurt - around 6 weeks
Your baby will continue to need frequent feeding, probably at night too. Breastfeeding is usually less frequent as he becomes more adept at feeding. Around 6 and 12 weeks you may find he is extra hungry and wants to feed and feed. That is quite normal because he is probably going through a growth spurt. After a few days increased feeding, he will settle back into his normal pattern. This is not the time to introduce solids. Your baby is not ready yet
Let your baby feed more, he will settle back to the normal feeding pattern in a few days. When feeding your baby at night, try to keep the light very dim and not make this a play time!
