I have a 5-month-old baby who no longer drinks regular amounts of milk.

Baby/parents

Question from a mother: Hello, I have a 5-month-old baby, and she no longer drinks regular amounts of milk. Sometimes she will drink 31oz one day and 23oz the next. She drinks every 3-3.5 hours, so 5 bottles a day. The days she drinks little, she turns away when I offer her the bottle, or rejects the nipple with her tongue. It takes forever for her to drink 4oz. She is always in a good mood, and she does her nights even if she doesn’t drink a lot. What do you think? I know that if I were breastfeeding, I wouldn’t have this question, as I wouldn’t be able to measure. Oh, and I have already moved on to medium flow nipples, and she seems to need to take extended breaks during the bottle, and doesn’t have stomach pain. She watches us more when we eat, but she doesn’t open her mouth. She bites her toys and fingers a lot.
