baby on bottle milk strike

My baby is 3 months old and recently he seems to be uninterested in drinking milk (either bm or fm) during daytime. His usual feeding routine is 100ml 2-3 hrs interval. However, he has not been drinking well lately. Only able to drink 30-60ml per feed. Able to advise why is this so? I'm quite worried about his milk intake :(

That’s a very possible reason. The milk flow from the bottle is too slow, so he needs to suck so hard just to get some milk out. That makes baby upset and unwilling to drink. My LO was like that too. After changing to the 3 mo teat, the feeding is much better.

Have you upsized your teat yet?

Nope. Still using the avent newborn teats.
