    Default 2 mth old not drinking as much

    Hi guys is it normal for bubs to change their drinking amounts. Little Ollie is 2 months today and for the last few nights I've been struggling to get 80-90mls into him for 3 of his feeds. He usually has 5-6 feeds of 150-170mls. He has started to cluster a bit at night, but not enough to compensate I don't think. I'm worried he's not getting enough

    I think the general guide amount for 24 hours is 150x the baby's weight. How much does he weigh?

    Is he having wet nappies still?

    Yeah he is. Thanks for the info. I worked out he is still drinking about the same just at random weird times. Like he'll have 200mls for one feed and then hardly nothing for the next one etc.

    I *think* it's evening out....going to get him weighed next week just to be on the safe side.

    Good luck. My Bub is pretty funny with feeds. She doesn't have her "recommended" amount and sometimes has a full 200 and other times only has 40.
