My daughter will be 10 months old this month. She always munches, she just wants her bottle to sip on (2 ounces here and there). I sit her down 4 times a day for meals at certain times per our pediatrician.
What am I doing wrong? It's a major pain in the rear that she isn't getting as much formula as babies her age should, yet all she wants to do is sip on it here and there.
Should I just not give it to her when she fusses and wait till she'll actually drink it all? I mean it seems crazy having a 10 month old that takes 2 oz bottles at a time. When we are out and she's in her car seat or something she'll tend to finish a 4 oz bottle.
It's just all becoming very frustrating and I feel like there has to be some answer. It's like she's still a newborn when it comes to eating habits. I'm also scared this is the reason she is still waking 2-3 times a night and wanting to munch and then sleep.
