Hi My 15 week old is still feeding every 2 hours as she really seems to struggle eating more than 2-3 ounces in one go. I've tried the usual - undressing her, changing her nappy, tickling her feet, but nothing seems to make her eat any more.
Has anyone got any hints or tips to make her eat more? Am wondering whether I should let her cry it out a bit just to try and make her more hungrier and hopefully eat more or should I just stick with it and hope things develop on their own. Thanks
Hi - I was FF at that age too. I aimed to feed every 3 hours and that meant DS took in a decent amount. I remember him wanting the bottle early and going through something similar. I make him wait a bit. But try to stretch out the schedule gradually. Perhaps try to stretch her out to 2.15 mins for a day or 2, then 2.30 mins for a day or 2 until she's closer to 3 hours?
We were feeding every 3 hours for a long time. Quite possibly until weaning. My memory isn't so great. That's the lack of sleep...another story!
