My baby wont drink her milk!
My little girl is nearly 4 months old, born in January was only 5lb 14oz (12 days early). I tried to breast feed but she just would not latch on so had to go to formula & bottles. She has fed ok, but has never seemed really hungry but has put weight on steadily. She now weighs 11lb 120z. In the last few days she just will not take much milk - only 3 or 4 ozs out of 7oz bottle. She is very easily distracted but just doesn't seem interested in feeding at all. I am going to try a bigger teat to see if that works, but at the moment I am getting very frustrated with her and I'm scared that she wont put weight on or even lose weight. I'm also worried about weaning & if she is going to be a fussy eater. Other than feeding problems she seems ok, is very vocal and likes to play and is sleeping for at least 8-10 hours at night. Has anyone had or is having the same trouble & what do you suggest before I get to the end of my tether altogether?:?
