  • would suck for us if we were on a liquid diet, wouldnt it?

  • She might be going through a growth spurt.

  • Growth spurts are normal around the six month mark, and my pediatrician told me that for some reason taller babies hit growth spurts a little earlier. Keep feeding her on demand, her feeding routine will go back to normal soon.

    You can also try feeding her an ounce or two of bottle with her meals to "wash it down" and it may eliminate her want for a bottle so soon after. This is a good time to introduce the sippy cup, even if you have to hold it for her.
