My dd has been going off her milk a bit (although i never seem to be engorged, so maybe shes just quicker at feeding...dunno) and today had a feed at 7am and not again until 2pm... and i really had to keep trying to get her to take a feed which she did eventually, but only when i would cuddle up in bed with her so she could doze at the same time. just changed her nappy.... hardly any wee.... what could be up. i think she is teething (altho i've been saying that for weeks too!) i am also wondering if shes just simply prefering to beed at night, in bed, cuddling up?

Sometimes ds is like this especially if we have some visitors or are out. She rarely feeds in these cases as is too distracted. If I worry I take her to a very quiet small m &b room but most of the time I figure if she really wanted it she'd take it. I guess if she hasnt fed there would be no wee. Is she ok otherwise?

How is she today, Spod? Was it a one-off odd day? It seems to me like at a certain age, maybe around 8-10 months?, they often seem to drop their milk intake dramatically, only to pick it up again (quantity & frequency), later.
