  • oh gosh i wish my 13 week old is like that! about the same age as yours, but he doesn't eat. =[ I'm taking him to a gastrointestinal doctor specialist because his pedi thinks there's something wrong with him other than reflux. I had to give him cereal in his bottle because the pedi says it would hel keep it down and it has stopped him from spitting up as much. But I don't know about yours, maybe just up the formula by an ounce or two? If there's nothing medically wrong with her then you should wait until at least 4 months.

  • The AAP recommends nothing other then breastmilk or formula until at least 6 months of age. Try giving more then 4 oz at a time.

  • I would just up the amount of formula, if you feed them too young the can get food allergies. Not all babies do but they can.

  • My daughter just turned 4 months and she's been drinking 6oz every 3 to 4 hours for a few weeks now. Just up the ounces.
