My almost 5 month old has been fully on formula for 5 weeks now and I'm not sure if she's drinking enough.
I know formula tins do tend to overstate how much babies need, but my baby sometimes only has 30 mls per feed.
For example here's how her feeds looked yesterday:
3:30am - 175mls
5:45am - 60mls
7:45am - 40mls
9:45am - 60mls
12:00pm - 30ml
2:15pm - 90mls
5:55pm - 110mls
7:15pm - 90mls
12:15am - 150mls
I know the smaller feeds were closer together, but she catnaps and I need to feed her in between each feed or she won't go to sleep at all.
Does this sound normal to anyone?
I'd feed her more in the mornings to fill her tummy to give her a good nap, but she's not interested in the mornings. If this isn't normal, is there anything I can do to get her to drink more during the day? She drinks a lot during the night but not as much in the day which is also a problem...I think.
Any suggestions? Thanks!!!!!
