;;;;;;;;;;;;; Growth spurt
What is growth spurt?
Out here we often talk about growth spurt. So, I felt like giving a description of what it is and how to handle it better with knowing what actually it means.
Growth spurt occurs in every babies and this is the period where parents are in for a lot of surprises making them go crazy, where parents can see their baby reacting very differently to the everyday routine the once followed until the previous day.
When does it happen?
Researchers have come to a cumulative conclusion that more or less these growth spurts occurs mostly during the first few days at home after a discharge from the hospital and around 7-10 days, 2-3 weeks, 4-6 weeks, 3 months, 4 months, 6 months and 9 months approximately. This does not end there, most moms notice growth spurts every few months during the toddler years and periodically thereafter on through the teenage years.
How long does it take to settle?
Growth spurt usually occurs for a period of a day or two, but could also take a toll for a week in few babies and that's the mist difficult phase to tackle.
What happens during this phase?
Breastfed babies nurse often than usual, sometimes as often as every hour. They become extremely fussier.
Physical growth like teething is not the only reason that babies may have a temporary need for increased nursing. Babies show up such tantrums when they are trying to learn a new skill such as rolling over, crawling, walking or talking. During this crucial period babies exhibit such behaviour and often feed on mom’s milk as they feel relived and this feed is important for their growing brain as well as the body.
How to handle it?
The best and the only way to handle such period in babies is to follow your baby's lead. It's a temporary phase.;
