Q:

my baby is 17 days old and since yesterday feeding every 45mins to an hour and extremely fussy and cranky. normally he would wake up every 2.5 to 3 hrs for a feed but now is hungry all the time. is this normal?? he feeds also longer.. sleeps lesser.. and at every feed he acts like he has been made to starve all day.. pls help as to what's wrong.. I am feeling extremely exhausted and drained.

Hi I am ankita and mother of 3 months old.. I think there is nothing to worry about the feeding time... Your baby has tummy size of a pebble so she/he feels extremely hungry as they pee and poop their stomach gets empty... I understand it's exhausting but this would not long enough.... Keep calm and enjoy the bond... Of course I am not pediatric but just a normal experience mom😀

hi, babies grow through growth spurts at times, and at those times they seem to be hungry all the time... it is also their natural way of increasing our milk supply, by demanding more.. he will settle down in a few days... 😊
