Another thought I had is maybe since she got into this habit of grazing she's just not that hungry, because she ate just a short while ago. If we ate a little bit every hour we'd be unlikely to want to sit down to a full meal as well (if we're following hunger cues). So would it be possible to delay her feedings each time by just a little bit, to build a bit more hunger so she'll actually eat a proper amount, get fuller and hopefully not demand to be fed again in a short while? I know it may seem harsh but you can start with a short delay of a few minutes before feeding her.. do something to distract her in the meantime or change her etc. What did the doctor say?

ps just saw your post about the paci. I wouldn't worry, I don't think babies allow that to take the place of a feeding. When my daughter is actually hungry there's no way a paci will do, she will spit it out and ask for the real thing.
