My baby will be 8 weeks on Friday. I'm having a problem with her snacking rather than eating a meal. She takes about 1½-2oz every hour/hour and a half. :/ Our pediatrician has noted this. She's healthy and growing, but it's tiring feeding her all day long.
We've gone through formula changes and have settled on soy. She's not spitting up and she's burping/passing gas as she should. The only addition we had to add is ½tsp of light karo syrup in 3 of her bottles as the soy really does a number on her.
Is there anything I can do to encourage her to drink more so it's less frequent (short of making her scream)? Even when she goes 4-5 hours sleeping during the night, she'll only drink 2-2½oz when she wakes.
