So my 24 week old used to drink 8oz bottles every 4 hours up until a couple of days ago. Now she always leaves around 3oz in her bottles. I've tried a bigger teat and leaving longer between feeds. Neither has been successful.
She seems to be chewing on the teat too, I've gave her dentinox and calpol before a feed incase its teething and it still doesnt work. Sometimes she drinks the rest after a 20 minute rest but this means it's a struggle to get her to have 4 bottles as she doesnt wake at night. Any ideas ?

Is she just having milk or solids too?

She has a couple of spoons of puree twice a day but not much at all. Not enough to be filling her up that much

From around 6 months a minimum of 20 ounces is recommended alongside food. How much is she taking in total?

Average around 800mls which is around 28oz so suppose it's not bad but she doesnt eat much food

It’s fine and completely normal- she’ll take what she needs for growth etc and when teething may take very little. Unless losing weight not a problem
