I have an (almost) seven month old and feeding her has always been a bit of a struggle but we have never supplemented and she is growing just fine...so I guess I shouldnt be worried.
The problem is that she eats so fast I literally only feed her for about 3 minutes and then she wants to stop. For the first four months of her life she would only eat on one side, so it would be three minutes total!!! Then, she started eating on both sides and it addsup to a total of about 5 minutes at most. Some days less. It drives me nuts because even during the time she is eating she pulls off takes a break and then dives back in. She eats about every 3-4 hours.
Some days like today she ate a good meal (only on one side at 5am) when she woke up and she hasnt eaten more than 2 minutes at a time since (12 hours later). Everytime she wakes up from a nap I try to feed her but she is not interested.
I have tried feeding her in a dark quiet room away from all people because she is so interested in everything and that helps a little but not much.
I am just wondering if anyone has had similar experiences. Has your baby eaten so quickly? Any advice?
