Hello, my daughter is almost 4 1/2 months old, and up until this week she has been exclusively breast fed. Due to some feeding frustrations on my end, and not enough weight gain on her end (she was born at 9 lbs 12 oz and is now 13 lbs even) , I have started supplemening some formula. I had previously fed her expressed milk occasionally with a bottle, so the change to a bottle has not been too hard, but I am noticing that she does not drink as much formula as breast milk. It's hard to be absolutely sure, but usually she will drink 5-6 oz of breast milk in a bottle feed. When I feed her formula she only drinks about 3-4 oz. She seems satisfied with this, but I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this before?
