My LO just turned 3 months old. Since Sunday, his behavior has been rather strange and erratic and I chalked it up to a growth spurt. But now I'm wondering if he's teething instead. How can you tell? Here's what his behavior has been like recently:
1) Sunday he was breastfeeding all day it seemed like. He wanted to nurse basically every hour. But then Monday and Tuesday he was back to normal - every 2 to 3 hours, except in the evening when he likes to nurse a bit more normally anyway.
2) Sunday night after breastfeeding all day, he slept like a log for 7 1/2 hours!!!! He usually sleeps about 4 to 5 hours. Very rarely does he do longer than that. Than Monday and Tuesday nights, he slept very fitfully. Making lots of grunting and groaning noises and emitting single cries. Monday night he never woke up fully for a feeding and went back to sleeping for 4-5 hours like normal - just fitfully. Tuesday night, he actually did wake up for feedings every two hours which he hasn't done in a very long time.
3) Sometimes, when he's nursing, he'll still cry for a little bit and so I don't know if his mouth is hurting or not - that's why I thought maybe he was teething.
Thanks for any insight y'all might have!
