Hi Suhasini! Growth spurts vary from child to child. Its very normal for baby at this age to demand frequently and cry. It could be due to various reasons like hunger, need for comfort, teething, colic etc. If baby is comfortable after feed then no need to worry but if baby is still crying let us know. 4 effective tips to calm down a baby troubled with colic!

development  in every child  is of same pattern but the rate vary.... if its growth spurt baby  will relax after  feed... otherwise its smthing else 

Sonali Shivlani

On an average we can expect growth spurts at 15, 30, 90 days. And then again closer to six months. However it can be plus or minus a few days. A growth spurt actually means that there is some growth expected and hence the body prepares for it.

sometimes they do demand more feed and it can be a growth spurt . see how ur baby is behaving over the next few days .. if ur baby is demanding to be fed very often then mabbe  he is hungry . else that was a growth spurt.
