Growth spurts

Essential information to remember During growth spurts, your baby will need to drink more and very often in order to meet her needs.

During your baby’s first months, she will experience rapid growth spurts. Her appetite will suddenly increase and she will want to be fed more often, sometimes every hour. Such growth spurts generally last a few days and may occur at any time during the first few months. Some babies will have more growth spurts than others. Growth spurts occur most frequently around:

  • 7 to 10 days
  • 3 to 6 weeks
  • 3 to 4 months
