my daughter is going to 6 months old in 2 weeks. the past 2 times ive brought her to the drs office i told her she still only eats 3oz every 3 hrs. if i give her more she throws it up. She is 16lbs and is 25 1.2 inches tall. shes not having any problem gaining weight but today they said they worry she eats too little and they want me to give her an extra oz a half hour after she eats if she will take it..

so im wondering how old are your children and how much do they eat?

 My oldest at 6 months was taking 8-9oz 4 times a day and acted like he could take more.

My youngest was taking 7-8oz 4 times a day and seemed full after.

They love to eat!

Could she be drinking too fast? What kind of nipple are you using?

she does drink really fast. they have me putting oatmeal in her bottle  so she has the cereal nipples for playtex bottles.. we just tried the nuk bottles but i had to cut it a lil so the formula would come out

 What's the oatmeal in her bottle for? Reflux or because of her weight?

my daughter is almost two and eats two kid size plates of food per meal on a good day.

The plate has main dish, fruit and a vegtable and ususally a bread.

plus a cup of milk
