eating

my four month isn't eating as much the last week or so as she had been. There are times when she will only eat twice in the time period im gone to work when normally she was eating about four times. it's the same in the evening. Is this normal. she isn't unhappy when she is awake. she also seems to be sleeping more than before. so far today...she ate when she woke up which was at nine a.m going to bed at 1030 last night. and has only eatin once since then at 2 and she didn't ask to i just thought it was time and fed her.

  • It might just be a growth spurt or teething. It could also be the start of a virus or some illness. I'd watch for any fevers or pulling off the bottle when it's offered (could indicate a sore throat) and just make sure she's not dehydrated. You can try offering smaller amounts throughout the day until she's over this phase.

  • My daughter does the same thing and she is 3. The doctor said that some days they will eat and some days they won't
