My 10 Week Old Eats All The Time And Doesn T Nap Well

My 10 week old was on a routine that worked really well for both of us up until about 3 weeks ago. She was on the EASY (eat, activity, sleep) routine and was just starting to sleep through the entire night. All of a sudden things changed. Now she wants to eat every 2.5 hours (previously was going 3-3.5) and sometimes will only eat for about 10 minutes on one br___t and then be hungy an hour later. Her naps have gone from 1.5-2 hours to 45 minutes if that. I thought it was just a growth spurt at first but now I am not sure. Can anyone help?

I don't know if I can help but my lo did something similar around that age- we had a great routine down and then she changed everything. I guess its normal that they change their sleeping habits so much because they are constanstly growing and changing. I sort of just go with the flow. If she seems hungry I would feed her. 3.5 hours is a long time for a b___stfed baby to go. My 4 month old still eats every 2 hours during the day (excet when she takes a long afternoon nap)

My DD does this too - she's around 9 weeks - but she has been doing it for a long while now, and I'm not sure why. She is BF though, and I would say she eats every hour unless she takes a longer nap, but she usually doesn't. Wish I could help.. hope someone does so I can get some advice too!

Wish I could give u some advice too. My ds is 15wks and just suddenly went off routine. Only thing that I can think is that when they go thru a developmental milestone, or their brains b/cm more aware, they will get up often from internal stimulation...kind of like a growth spurt. Keep doing what ur were (same method I use) and hope it will pa__s. Like Excited said, at this age they change so often it's hard to keep up:-) GL
