I can always tell when DS is going throw a growth spurt, because, he eats and eats and doesn't spit up afterwards.
He is very consistent about spitting up if he has had too much. If I am worrying that he hasn't had enough, and I coax him to eat a little more, (like when I think he hasn't eaten enough because we are out some where, and he is distracted--) his body is usually very consistent at expelling the overage, and he also does this when he is sick, and mainly just nursing for comfort, and then he spits up all the overage that his stomach can't handle.
But whenever he is nursing and nursing and nursing and nursing, (so on and so on) and he is keeping every drop of it down, then I know his body is starting to need all that extra, and then I realize it's a growth spurt.
I had nearly forgotten about the big 6 month growth spurt.
But today, he hasn't been doing it as much as yesterday, so I guess I'm making more now.
