I'm thinking growth spurt

For much of last week the Blueberry did a 2-hr cluster feed in around 2 or 3 am. In other words, after sleeping for several hours, he'd demand 2 feedings in a row or less than 30 minutes after finishing the first feed. Then on Monday evening (the wee hours of Tuesday morning), he cluster fed for 3 hours--from 3 am to 6 am. Not fun at all. Last night he again repeated the 3-hr cluster feed but this time from 11pm to 2 am. Yeah, stupid me though I was doing his last feed of the evening and we'd both head to bed afterwards. At 1am, I realized I was seriously mistaken. Oh the plus side, he only fed for 30 min after waking a 5am this morning.

Though it's possible this behavior is related to the cold my husband gave him, I'm thinking growth spurt as we near that 3 month mark. Either way, I hope it passes soon or moves to a more acceptable 3-hr block before my bedtime of 11pm-12am.
