Last time I posted here I got some amazing replies which helped alot.

So was wondering if anyone can help with the following.

LO is 7 months today! - Oh my I thought we still had a week to go!

Her last feed is at 10:30pm. Her morning feed is at 7:00am. For the last few days she is refusing her morning feed. She takes just to 2oz out of the 4oz.

Today I just left it at 2oz and made egg breakfast. She only ate a bit. Then at 9 she took 5oz ( only because she fell aslee!)

Then I feed her every 3 hours (4oz) or will she drink 3oz. (Always been like this) and after her bottle I will offer solid. (Yoghurt mixed with fruit for lunch)

Evening veggie.

By 10:30pm she drinks about 19 oz - 23oz.

Anyone else LO like this - just want to put my mind at rest.

What a journey.. feeding has been a struggle since day 1. (Formula fed)

If she's happy & gaining weight I'd say you're doing fine. Some babies (my 2nd included) just don't seem to need/want much milk.

Thank you TiggeryBear.

I can't get her weighed sad I try at home and the scale keeps showing different weight 😬😬

I never got either of mine weighed (I found it all to stressful; getting anxious that I'd get told off for them not gaining enough or gaining too much) but both of mine outgrew their clothes so I took that to mean that they were consuming enough calories to enable them to do so. They were producing plenty of wet & dirty nappies. (You get the idea) & were starting to sleep well. (I seem to produce easy babies but nightmare 2yrs + toddlers 😫)
