  • go with the flow... she knows what her body needs and how. It may be she's coming DOWN from a spurt... PERSONALLY... I don't believe in making babies eat on an ADULTS schedule but in following their own bodies rhythms... it does and WILL change quite a bit esp. in the first year.
    In a few she'sll be eating like crazy and sleeping all the time then switch off to a diff schedule....

  • Maybe she is going through a little growth spurt or something.. That can cause a decrease in appetite.

  • WHAT? not sure why the above poster would tell you such a thing. Growth spurts make them hungier, and eat MORE, not less! Lol I would still say babies are the best at knowing how much they want, if she is otherwise doing fine I wouldnt worry too much. Maybe she is teething and eatting hurts her mouth? But she isnt fussy so that may not be it. Im not sure but if she is happy then she is ok.
