    Default Need advice please

    Hi there ,
    I have a 4 month old girl who has always been a great feeder. She was drinking about 750ml a day over 5 feeds and weighs 6.5kg at the moment.
    The last 3 days she has dropped her night feed completely and only taking around 560mls a day. Is this enough ?
    She is having wet and dirty nappies as normal and is a happy little girl. I’m just worried as it’s a significant drop.
    She sleeps all night ( has from birth) so we don’t do night feeds. However I woke her up early today to try get more hours for feeding and it appears to have made no difference.
    Any advice or reassurance would be great
    Thanks
    Lauren

    If she is happy and alert and seems fine I wouldn't stress, sometimes babies appetites go up and down, but if you're worried just go to your maternal child health nurse, that is what they are for. They'll weigh and measure her and give you reassurance.

    my little one is 3 months old and was sleeping overnight. she’s breastfed but same measurements as your little one, she’s closer to 6kg than 6.5kg though.

    i wouldn’t stress, if she’s otherwise happy, gaining weight and lots of wet/dirty nappies then she sounds fine. some babies just don’t need food at night! mine has started waking once for a feed, i think she’s having a growth spurt. hopefully she goes back to sleeping through again soon lol
