My JB has decided to wean herself the past few days. She won't nurse at all or even latch. I was sick Friday with the flu, so i think it just set it off.
Anyways, now I'm bottle feeding, and everything i've read says that an 8 month old gets between 21 and 30 ounces for a day.... Genna has not been drinking anywhere near that! Today she had 5 feedings- none more than 4 ounces! Her total today was 14.5!! Now that I know exactly how much she's getting (or NOT getting), now I feel like I have a whole new worry! And what's weird is when I was nursing her and have DH give her a bottle of formula for the night, she would sometimes drink 6-8 ounces. Her appetite for solids has been down, too.
She's generally happy, gaining fine (as far as I know), and seems to wet her diapers okay.
Anyone have a JB who's inconsistent with bottle feeding?? I'm wondering if I should call the ped.
