8 week growth spurt?

I'm exhausted. I work overnight, and haven't slept in two days. LO refuse to sleep, and had been eating non stop. I'm so tired I put her in the carrier for fear of dropping her. I didn't know this even exists. I was thinking we'd just coast until the three month one.

Re: 8 week growth spurt?

  • I was about to ask this question because I didn't know there was an 8 week growth spurt either, but the last 3 nights have been hell he sleeps for an hour at a time so I'm probably getting 30 minutes at a time. I can hardly focus when he wakes up again. He fusses all day and won't nap unless we are holding him. I am exhausted I'm hoping this passes soon and that it was just a growth spurt. I'm hoping to hear what others say about this and that's it's completely normal.
  • Same here! LO was 8 weeks on Friday. Eating, sleeping, eating, tired fussing, eating... Glad we are not alone :::mobile smiley:::

    Another poster recommended an app called Wonder Weeks, it says that at 8 weeks they go through a develoment leap. Supposed to be a rough 2 weeks!


    I got this app awhile back from another post recommendation. It's interesting because it calculates from due date, so even though my LO will be 8 weeks Tuesday, it has let me know he's coming out of that second leap. yay yay and another yay. I think the range to watch out for is 7.5 to 9.5 weeks, but it definitely doesn't last 2 weeks op.

    I'm hoping this is what's going on!
  • Thank goodness I'm not the only one. K has her first shots Thursday and I'm worried they'll make it worse. I'm actually kinda happy to be at work right now

  • I didn't think there was an 8 week one either. But the last three days have been wicked. No naps, cranky, and eating all day. Though LO is 9 weeks now.
