Question: I’m exhausted! How do I survive during my baby’s growth spurts?
Answer: During a growth spurt, let everyone else do everything else. This means at home, someone else cooks dinner, loads the dishwasher, and washes clothes for a few days.
Question: How do I know my baby is getting enough to eat?
Answer: Babies who are eating enough will pee, poop, and gain weight. It is normal for babies to lose weight in the 1st 3 days, but once mom’s milk is in, babies will begin gaining about 1oz per day (or 5 oz per week) during the 1st 4 months.39 more words
