Reduced feeding at 6 weeks

My 6 week old DD has has recently reduced her overall milk intake by about 5-6oz (160ml) a day (e.g. 20oz in 24hr instead of 25),

She seems well in herself and hasn't been unwell, she just takes less at each feeding (sometimes only 2oz) but I'm worried that she will lose weight or stop growing.

Has this happened to anyone else?
Could it be that she has previously had a growth spurt?

She's formula fed btw.

Might be worth speaking to your health visitor. Have you had your 6 week check yet?

I wouldn't panic if she's having plenty of wet nappies. She might pick up feeding again tomorrow..they can be random at this age!
