I have a 5 month old boy (will be 6 months in a week). He is on the small side, only about 6.4kg (around the 7th percentile now but was huge at birth, 4.19kg) and we cannot get him to take more than 100 to 130ml at a time! From what I read, he should be over 200ml per feed now. But he just won't do it...
He eats frequently, sometimes after only an hour he'll eat again. But he only averages about 750 ml per day. Sometimes he'll have a little over 800, but not usually. Health nurse says he needs 900ml a day for proper growth.
We started him on cereal early hoping it would help with weight, but he's not a fan of solid food either.
Any suggestions? He seems healthy and happy other than not eating much. Sleeps and naps OK, 6 or more wet nappies a day... everything else seems normal.
