My DD is (or will be this week) 4 mo. Her diaper output is good. My mom is taking care of her now, so she feeds my baby while I'm at work with bm bottles. I showed her how to do it so she wouldnt overfeed the baby, and also, it helped her because my baby chocked a lot when feeding from the bottle.
Yesterday, my mom called me because the baby cried pretty much all day, and she used some of my freezer stash to feed her some more since she was still hungry after 3 or 3.5 oz bottles. She told me the baby was ok after about 1 or 1.5 oz more.
I pump at work every 2 hours, for a total of 4 sessions, 3 to 3.5 oz per session total. (usually 3 oz... and 3.5 in the first session)
I am not sure if babies supposed to have growth spurts at 4mo, I thought she already was through her 3 mo growth spurt. I am concerned that 3 oz may not be enough for her anymore and that I would have to supplement.
I got worried and I started taking fenugreek last night and today, and ate oatmeal this morning (which I was doing a while back, but stopped...). I got 4.5 oz first session, 4oz in the next one and then 3.5 oz in the other 2 sessions.
She has her 4 mo appointment this friday and I don't know if I should start thinking about feeding her cereal or something like that. I know it doesnt help her calorie intake, but she may be ready for solids?? Don't know... she is not able to sit down by herself yet, so probably not...
Any thoughts? She's also still eating every 2-3 hours during the night...
