Mydaughter will be 15 weeks on Thursday and i feel like instead of her formula intake going up it's going down. When she was about 2 months she was taking 6 oz every 3 hours then it went down to 4ozs every 3 hours and now after 2oz she doesn't want anymore.

  • Babies appetites change just as much as they do. I wouldn't worry about it really. They go through growth spurts and stuff and change the way they eat along with it. She will get back on track. Ask your doctor what they think. I wouldn't worry though.

  • Growth spurts happen fairly early so it often looks like the appetite dropped when it really went back to normal. As long as he's still gaining weight, I wouldn't be concerned. Have you introduced cereal at this point? That could affect it too.

  • i did introduce cereal but only a little at dinner.

  • solids would definitely affect how much formula she's taking in. careful not to give too much solids yet

    but their appetites and growth are usually indicative of their feeding and vice versa. especially that young.
