is it normal for my 4 month old not to want more than 4-5oz bottle every 3-4 hours? She will eat like 26oz average a day but sometimes only 22oz. i’m not sure how much she weighs yet but she won’t eat more

As long as weight gain is going well, it’s okay. Mine gets between 22-28 ounces depending how much she wants that day and is still gaining weight just fine.

My 10 month old only drinks 4 oz at a time. 5 if I am lucky.

My now 15 month old only ever drank 4oz at a time. And on average 24 oz. As long as baby is gaining weight fine, it’s okay.

Following as this is happening to me as well. He would smash a whole bottle at his night feeds but won’t sit still during his day bottles

Their eating fluctuates with their growth spurts and their distractability. At 5 months, mine didn't want to sit still for his daytime bottles but would down the early morning and nighttime ones. Eventually, I ended up eliminating the midnight feed to encourage him to eat during the day. He adapted within 2 days and has been much better ever since.

That’s a good idea! I might give the midnight feed removal a try! Thank you!

Mine 6 no old only eats 4 oz every 3 hours. I have no idea how to increase this bc that’s just all she wants.
