Sophia has and I don't think it has anything to do with her cold. She used to suck down 4.5 ounces without a problem, my DH and I used to laugh when we looked at all her empty bottles on the counter, she never left a drop behind! and lately she has been eating anywhere from 2-4 ounces every 3 hours......I never experienced this with my other 2. This was what she had today:
5am - 1.5 ounce (yes, I said that right but she also fell asleep at the bottle)
8:30am- 2.5 ounces
11:00am- 2.5 ounces
1:30pm- 3.5 ounces
Anyone else experiencing this?
She is wetting and pooping (she only goes once a day or sometimes once every other day but this hasn't changed), she seems happy and content and starts to really cry hard if I try to push more formula on her, like she is telling me "ENOUGH"......LOL!!

Same here, Julius' last bottle is around 11:30pm, at his 4am feeding I can get 4.5 oz in him but after that he won't take more than 2.5-3 oz every 3 hours until it hits 5pm, then he wants 1.5-2oz every hour till 8pm.
idk how much Felix eats because he is breastfed but I have noticed that my breasts are a lot fuller lately so I definitely think he is eating less. Its totally normal for her appetite to slow down, in a few weeks she will probably hit a growth spurt and start eating you out of house and home DS1 has been see-sawing back and forth with his appetite for almost 2yrs now
I also BF, so can't say too much, but we have noticed that he is taking less and less from a bottle when DH feeds him. We are going to try switching bottles tonight to see if that makes a difference. I have another good JM friend who said that her LO switched bottle preference as he got older and she knows several other mommies who also experienced this.
