I think a lot of babies get a massive growth spurt at about 12 weeks - it could just be that. Give her a few days and see if it settles down.

Ds did this at that sort of age. Is it different if you're out? Could just be lack of other stuff to do if you are in. Or a growth spurt. Or something.

Sorry, lockets.....what can I say? Snacking is normal. I can't see any benefit in trying to stop it. It will pass. It may be already passing, now you see she is disrracted from it when you are out.

My ds did this too and he never grew out of it until he was on solids and into a proper routine at around 6 months. I found it very frustrating as it meant he never had a full tummy and never slept for very long because he was always hungry. Sometimes I think I misred the signals and tried to feed him when he wasn't very hungry, which meant he only fed for a few minutes. I did crack it for a while by giving him expressed bottles. That way I knew he had a full feed, but he/we soon drifted back to snacking.
