Hi all,

DD2 is almost 6 months old, weighs 18lns and is on the 9th centile for height and weight. She is FF and recently from having 3-4 ounces every 2 hours or so,to 5 ounces every 3 with one feed in the night - all fine.

However the last 4 days she's been totally uninterested in milk and I have to wait until she's sleeping and dream feed her, otherwise she won't drink it at all or will do 2 Oz max. She had had between 20-26 oz formula each day this week, which is way below therecommended 2.5 x weight sad

Any ideas as to why? She seems perfectly well in herself and doesn't appear unwell or that her teeth are bothering her especially.

I only BF DC1 so I don't know if she too started taking less milk as she got to this stage or if this isn't right confused

Thank you in advance for any help! smile
