    Default Uncoordinated sucking

    HiI've noticed since jabs my 12wo is sucking all over the place, different and it seems uncoordinated takes ages for her to get goingIs this something I should look into?Is there such thing? Are the bottles better suited to kids who suck like this?

    I think your bub is starting to discover their mouth and what they can do with it. I recall DD pursing her lips and occ blowing raspberries.

    Your bub is also probably working out different strengths of the sucking action.

    dont stress - it will probably pass soon.

    I'm concerned as her milk intake has dropped dramatically!

    At 12 weeks their intake can drop as they are becoming more aware and active, if she's still happy I wouldn't worry
