Gettin' bigger

Gage is on a pretty standard schedule at night for nursing waking up every three hours or so. But during the day he wants to nurse more frequently, more like every two to three hours. And starting this afternoon, he's nursing even more frequently. Three weeks old is a pretty common age for a growth spurt. La Leche calls these spurts "frequency days." Fun. I'm planning to take Gage to the doctor Thursday to check his weight. I'm sure we'll see the results of this nursing increase then.

He's also getting into a pattern of increased fussiness in the late afternoon and early evening which is also normal. It's frustrating but normal. Combine the two and life is a barrel of laughs. :) Ah, the joys of parenting.

Like I keep telling him, he's damn lucky he's so cute!
