Perhaps any of you can help me or advice me what to do. My daughter is now 3 months old and has a poor appetite. She takes an average of 21 oz a day (650 ml), sometimes only 575 ml and 700 ml on a really good day. Her pedriatrician is asking me to give her 800 ml per day. She is gaining weight but not as quick as he wishes her to. She was at the 50th percentiles, and now down to the 33 percentiles (but never lost weight), he wish that she gains between 30 to 33 g a day.
On the other hand, she is very alert, she coos a lot and does all the physical movements expected of babies her age (maybe even a little more, like she can turn on her side since a while).
