Eating issues?

For the last couple days, my 9 week old daughter is eating, but not eating well. She will only take about 1 1/2 oz at a time...sometimes up to 3, but she just wants to sleep. Up until this last couple days I thought she was going through a growth spurt because she was eating bigger bottles and sleeping more...then this. Should I be worried?

  • When my daughter went through growth spurts it was usually a week of eating a lot followed by a week of nothing but sleep. If her appetite doesn't start picking back up in the next few days, call your doctor.

  • Probably was a growth spurt. My son will eat like a little pig and then sleep more and not eat much a week later.

  • Nope, it sounds like a normal growth spurt to me, that is exactly what my daughter did. Just let her sleep mama!
