When Are The Growth Spurts

Does anybody know when all the growth spurts for babies are? I haven't times how long dd went between feeds yet but the last few days it seems like all she does is eat like every hour!! I'm actually suspecting that may be why she is puking up more now. she is in her 8th week. I heard the growth spurts are at 2 weeks,6 weeks and 3 months but haven't heard anything about the 8th week.Does every baby just go through it at a different time?

10 days to 3wks, 6 wks, 3 months and 6 months. They shouldn't be regarded as set in stone though. A growth spurt generally lasts anything between 4-7 days. If she is still demanding more feedings after this time and might be something else....possibly time to change to a new nipple level. If she's FF you can increase the amount she drinks eg. from 4oz to 6oz.

If she's spitting up more try offering her food even more often. Then she won't eat as ferociously or as much in one sitting -- something that caused our dd to spit up a lot more than normal.
