Sebastian is 5 1/2 weeks and i know he will have a big growth spurt at 6 weeks, his 2 and 3 week were big so i can only imagine his 6 week...but maybe not. I am just terrified of it coming. He nursed and nursed so much on me that my nips hurt and i didn't get much rest and didn't get anything done. He doesn't nap much in the day and am afraid that he won't at all when the spurt comes. I just want to hear its going to be okay and i will get through it. It was tough mentally for the 2 and 3 week one and i am so dreading the 6 week one.

Beck i'll be calling you! I need all the help i can get girls, because it literally scares me when i think about it coming. I know it sounds weird but thought i would post it here since alot of you girls have gone through it.

Best of luck, Jess! Elliot nursed constantly from 2 - 3 1/2 weeks so I know how you feel! He started his 6 week growth spurt yesterday, but it hasn't been nearly as bad as the last.
