Hope is just not interested in eating a lot.

she drinks 2-3 oz most feeds and still eats every 3 or so hours and wakes up SEVERAL times a night to eat.

She drinks parent's choice from walmart, uses playtex drop-ins and is on a medium nipple. I tried a fast to see if it would help. One day she can handle it and drinks 5 oz if you burp her and give her a break. the next she cant handle the fast nipple and drinks 2-3 oz every feed instead.

It is so **** frusterating!

Yesterday was 5 oz in the am, 5 after each nap, 3 before bed and at 11. Awesome

today, 5 total since getting up for the day

Sam is not that way, he is a piggy but my daughter was that way, I think the most she ever drank at a sitting was 5oz and that was rare even as she approached 1 yr she just didn't drink a whole lot. it is frustrating but I can tell you she is just fine, a healthy happy 3 yr old. She still doesn't eat a whole lot but it is just her and the way she is. So try not to stress! I know easier said than done!

how many oz is she having a day? even if she's getting the 'right' amount it must be frustrating getting up so much! I know Emersyn was really weird about her feeding for awhile, but then she got herself into a nice little routine
