Hi, I'm Erin and I'm new here. My little man Luke is 4 1/2 months and I have a question about formula amounts. His stats are as follows:
Birth: 8 lb 7 oz
1 month: 10 lbs 6 oz
2 months: 13 lbs 7 oz
4 months: 15 lbs 14 oz
My question is...he is only eating around 24 ounces a day...sometimes more (most has been 28, and sometimes less around 22 oz). He is having plenty of wet diapers, and seems to be happy but we just can't get him to eat more. We offer a bottle every 3-4 hours with at least 6 oz in it and sometimes he's just not interested in eating much. We think he may be teething but really he's always been like this. I'm just worried because 1) he hasn't doubled his birth weight and 2) he's dropped in percentiles.
The pedi doesn't seem concerned but I am!! Any advice? Anyone else had a baby that only took around this many ounces? Thanks in advance!!!
