Thank u for all your advice. She is doing a bit better now a taking 3/5oz at least every 4hours, however she is so restless witch isnt like her. The health visitor has told me she should be taking 7oz every 4hrs.

p.s she is on formula

are we talking breast milk, fromula, or cow's milk? I don't want to give advice without know what kind of advice you need.

Hi hope this helps you! I know it is scary but your baby girl knows what she needs and when she needs it, trust me when the little stinkers are hungry they eat!! And because of teething when she goes to suck that sensation can be quite painful so the next suggestion helps, what I did was gave my son a cold wash rag to suck on to help sooth the pain and when he took to it I statred dippin it in cold milk just for the extra calories he was missin out on ask your doctor about baby origel that might help ease her discomfort so she can eat or give the milk to her cold in the bottle. I hope this helps you! Good luck!

i know that health professionals advise that you dont wean a baby till they r about 6 months but i started weaning my eldest at just over 3 months because she was off her milk. try cow and gate fruit breakfast :) x
