She has been sick for about 7 weeks with various things. First RSV that then got worse. Finally over that and got a bad cold 4 days later, which was much worse within a week (goop coming out her eyes and double ear infection) finally better again and 6 days later double ear infection and some congestion. With all of this eating has been a struggle. Especially at the beginning. We had days where 10 oz of formula in 24 hours was all we could get. She's doing better, but now she's use to being fed in the middle of the night. From 4 months she slept 12 hours, but when she got so sick and woke in the night we fed her since she was eating so little. Now she wants to be fed at least once in the middle of the night, and her eating is sort of all over the place. I'm not sure what she should be eating at this point and how much? She also has not hit her 9 month growth spurt, and she has always hit them right on time, quick and efficiently. We figured it was because she's been sick, and the Dr. agreed and wasn't worried because she still put on a minimal amount of weight but good amount while sick. But now I'm at a loss and want to get her back to her old routine, but not sure what the food part of that should look like. Any help? also, any help with getting out that night time feeding?
