    Default Getting bub to drink whole bottle at once

    Hello, just wondering for ideas of how I can get bub to have her whole bottle in the morning. She will only have 60ml and the rest of the 210ml later on.

    She doesn't think all her quota through out the day but does have food.

    Hence why I think she's struggling to gain weight

    How old is she? Are you giving her formula or cows milk?

    Do you heat the bottles up or are they at room temperature?

    As in a new brand of bottle? She could just be adjusting to the change.

    If she feeds over night in the morning she probably only has 60mls as she's not hungry enough to drink the full bottle but returns to it later when she's hungry enough for it.

    @Nafsika How much is she eating at night before she goes to bed Luv?? And does she also have a bottle before she goes to sleep after dinner??

    I'm just wondering if maybe she's eating too much solids as in portion sizes which may be why she won't drink all of her milk quota for the day?? Do you base the volume of milk she should be drinking in a day by her weight or recommendations on the back of the formula tin??
