hi mummy, my 6mth old baby started to drink less milk,normally 120ml but now 40-60ml each feed, i only give my baby solid food 2-3tablespoon each day, how to increase back her milk intake ? should i give her solid food twice her day since her milk intake is lesser?
Take your child's weight in ounces and divide that number by 6 (132 / 6 = 22). This figure represents how many ounces of breast milk that your baby should be getting in one day. Based on the weight above, this child should be taking in about 22 ounces of breast milk in a 24 hour period.Read more
- Hi Mummies, do you experience your baby have lesser intake of milk when reaches 3 month onwards? My baby girl started to have lesser milk intake. Sometime she dun even finish her milk if i will to bottle feed her. I switch routine to latch her during day time (whenever she need) and bottle feed her once or twice per day. PD seen her during her 3rd month injection and certify her healthy and said they called it as cheeky baby. Told me can start to give soft food 4 month onwards..Charlene Lim
- My 6mth old has just begun consuming solid, mainly homemade purée for at most twice a day. I usually give it to her after milk feed. I realised there was a tremendous decline in her milk intake (via bottle). She will refused milk from bottle but she will be okay with direct nursing. In total, she can nurse approx. 2 hours in a day and drink only 200ml or less of FM. I do not want to force her to drink more milk as I tried & she will puke. Last check she is at 8kg @ 6mth & 3 weeks. Should I be worry?Cindy Chen
- My baby is 6.5 months. I feed her with little solid food twice per day and providing her BM every 3hours but after each fed (solid or milk) she will cry like asking for more. At this age would they know if they are full? Or I need to increase my amount?Anonymous
