    If she is putting on weight and has enough wet and dirty nappies I wouldn't worry.... How many mls is she drinking?

    Default Sleeping longer now dropping bottles

    My son at 3months was only having 4 bottles they were 180ml each, if bub is putting on weight and has lots of wet nappies I wouldn't worry to much some babies don't need as much as others and the guide on the tin is just that a guide

    She has plenty of wet nappies but worried they may start to drop off since it has only been a couple of days, she drinks 150ml twice a day and bout 170ish morning and before bed. Can't get her to drink anymore!

    We had a lot of difficulties with DD drinking her milk for the first few months... she has NEVER drank as much a day as the tins recommend. If she has wet nappies and is gaining weight, your fine. If she needed the bottle she would be waking for it, relax and enjoy your sleep!
