This post is very late as Kaili is 20 weeks next Friday, better late than never I guess. A little over 2 weeks ago when I switched her formula her eating regressed a bit. She was taking 3.5 oz. then went down to 3.oz and definitely not hitting the 24 oz. a day her Pediatrician wants her to eat. Since she is on the lower percentile for weight I will admit I worried a little bit. Then all of a sudden two days ago she became a hungry little thing and is now taking 4 oz. every 2-3 hours. She is also waking up at 3 or 4 am. to eat again. I assume it was a growth spurt or just adjusting to the new formula. I hope this lasts, well not the 3 am feeding but the larger feedings. Now I don’t wan’t her to get used to eating at 3 am so I am in a pickle. Do I continue to feed her at this time since she is lagging in weight and wait another month to ween her off , or should I do it now?
Not too much longer and I can start introducing her solids, something I am really looking forward to. I will admit she has already “tried” some fruits. This morning she was eyeing my mango so i mushed a little on my finger and let her try it and she was eager for more. I must say it was a pretty good mango.
Well on to the cute stuff, here is baby girl at 19 weeks!
