my 4 1/2 month old has gone from eating 6 oz to 4 oz every 2-3 hours. Is it normal? should I be worried?

  • I have 3 kids and all of mine went thru stages of eating more at time or less at times when they were babies. I never really worried about it too much cause their appetite would always pick up after a week or so. I would probably talk to their dr if it lasted longer than that tho.

  • My dd did that too and it's probably just her growth spurt taking a break! If it keeps decreasing then check with your dr. but otherwise it should be fine!
