DD is 11 weeks and today seems to want to eat little and often. She's taking the first half of her bottle fine then refusing to take the second half. Crying and turning away. We've had a couple of bad weeks with reflux. So not sure if it's that or a growth spurt.
Thanks in advance

Growth spurts in my experience usually mean 'asking for' and taking more milk than normal, certainly not refusing. It could just be that she is sleepy and doesn't want any more or as you say reflux so she's uncomfortable. If you're concerned call your health visitor/ doctor or even NCT helpline.

If you ask in infant feeding there are some feeding experts who can help.

Is she taking less over all or little twice as often iyswim?
Mine feeds little and often before behaviour leaps. I have the wonder weeks app which suggests this could be related.
