6weeks old doesn’t want to drink milk

Hello mommies, my LO is almost 6 weeks old, she drank 100ml per feeding up to last week, this week she doesn’t want to drink as much, we reduce to 80ml and sometimes she didn’t finished it either. She always falls asleep during feeding and got angry and cry if we keep feeding her. Today we fed her as usual but she only managed to drank 40ml and refused the rest. Anyone experienced the same problem and can share any advise? I’m so worried. Anyway she drink expressed breast milk. Thank you

Mine is like that too. It’s called cluster feeding. Just let her be. When she’s hungry she will definitely drink more. In mean time, rub tummy with oil

I tried to slowly coax her to drink. Took a lot of patience with her being angry and screaming. Thank you for your advise. Hope she’ll back to normal soon
