OMG!!! I thought I was SERIOUSLY going to have a mental breakdown yesterday. I even told my husband that it may be easier if I went back to work!!! That is how EXHAUSTING Kaylen was yesterday and the past 3-4 days!!! I thought an alien had come down and taken over my lovely daughter and implanted a fussy one in her place!!! My past 4 days have been exhausting, physically, mentally and emotionally!!! She wanted to EAT CONSTANTLY as soon as she was done eating she would cry...not just wimper like SCREAM!!! she would hardly sleep...naps were pretty much nonexistent....MAYBE snuck in a 20minute here and there that gave me JUST enough time to pump....between pumping, feeding, cleaning house, changing diapers, ATTEMPTING to soothe her, and not eating myself b/c there was just NO TIME!!! I was at a breaking point!!!

Finally today I had time to look up online and come to find out it was a growth spurt!!! Halleluja!! now today it is like MAGIC all of a sudden I have my normal baby back!!! Playing, smiling, NAPPING!!!! Normal feeding schedule!!! OMG I was seriously going INSANE!!! So I know we all have different dates here but anyone else go through this lately?

I think we're going through this right now. There isn't any screaming but he is a little fussy, forgot how to nap and has an insatiable appetite.

I think Alex had a growth spurt a couple weeks ago. It was miserable.

Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.

I think Alexis has been going through one the past few days. She's not quite that bad, but she's either sleeping a lot one day, or eating a lot the next day. She's been really fussy, especially at night, but that's been normal for her for hte past few weeks.

Savannah had one earlier and I had to up her food intake to satisfy her and then she went back down. I think she might be starting back up again. Today she has been wanting to eat every 1.5-2 hours. She usually eats every 3-3.5 hours. It takes a while to get her mind off food. Not getting much done due to her always wanting to be close to me and always awake.
