Sudden Feedings Much More Often

My ds is 4 weeks old and for the past couple days he is hungry much more often. Before he used to nurse approx every 3 hours during the day and only once between midnight and 7am, usually around 3 or 4. Now he's nursing just about every 2 hours on the spot both day and night. I assume he's going thru a growing spurt but then I started to worry that maybe my milk isn't satisfying him. Can anyone relate?

Growth spurt!! It should calm down in about 1 1/2 weeks. Then he will have another spurt and another.... The joys of motherhood....

It's just a growth spurt. Keep nursing as much as he wants, and your milk supply will rebalance itself. You have enough, he just wants it all! It will stop, just in time for another spurt :) You're doing fine :)
