My daughter is a week shy of being 7 months old and is drinking ssssssoooooooo much milk all of a sudden that I can't keep up! I know there's a 6 month growth spurt, which I thought she already hit about 2 weeks ago. She started waking up 3 times a night to eat, but after about a week of that she went back to her normal once a night waking. Well the last 3 days she's been back to waking 3 times to eat and I'm exhausted!
A month ago she was drinking 25-28oz a day. Yesterday, she drank 40oz!!!!! I know that the amount of milk is supposed to decrease with the introduction of solids, but she really has no interest in them. I keep offering, but she refuses them after a bite or two. Is this HUGE increase going to be her new 'norm' or does it sound like another growth spurt?
Thankfully I have enough in the freezer to make up what I can't pump in the day, but if this continues on I'll be running out fast.
Any advice would be great!
