Her weight is just below the 50th percentile and her height is between the 5-10th percentile for her age. As a guideline for a 4-6 month old child should eat the following: Breast-milk or Formula (6-8oz) 4-6 feedings a day. Infant Cereal (1-2 Tbsp) 2 feedings a day. Suggest giving her stained yogurt, cottage cheese, for calcium and protein to supplement the infant formula she is not taking in.
Hi Joy - I hear myself in you. New bubba (maybe first-time Mom?) filled with questions & anxieties. You are worried about your Bub but Im worried about YOU! You're the one fretting. If your bub has access to more milk than that but she stops drinking ie self-regulates & wont drink more after a little break - say 5-10 mins AND she's thriving & hitting all her growth targets, then chill mama. You may get some nut who thinks thats waaay wrong & sends you into a spin, but listen to the moderates not the radicals. Your bub is unique & is doing things her way. Who knows - down the track it may well change.
