Hi, My 8 weeks old has been more fussy than usual for about a week now. She also used to sleep an average of 7 hours a night and now only does 5... Are there developmental reasons that could cause that?

Yes, they get fussier they go through growth spurts.

Your baby could be going through a growth spurt. I think it usually happens around 7/8 weeks and again around 16 weeks. I heard it can last a day or up to a week. My baby is 2 months and used to be on a 3-3.5 hour schedule and slept 7-8 hours at night. But, just this week, her schedule has been all over the place during the day and has been sleeping only 4-5 hours at night. I've been feeding her on demand, a__suming she's going through a growth spurt. Good Luck!

Thanks for your input. I hope all is well for all of you ladies (gentlemen...) and little ones.
