    Default 4 month old decreased feedings

    I am a 1st time momma and needing a little affirmation just to know things are okay. For the past 3 days or so my LO, now 4 months old, has seemed to be less interested in nursing. He normally eats 8 times a day and has dropped 1-2 feedings the past few days. He is still happy and seems satisfied. He still has 6+ wet diapers and 1-3 poopy diapers each day. He is pretty nosy these days and likes to look around while nursing. Maybe this is just a phase. Like I said, I think all is well, but just need everyone else's opinion.

    Totally normal! Just keep an eye on dipes for wets and poops if you're worried, but that's actually really common at this age.

    DD did that around 4 months, and then picked those feedings up again a month or so later.

    Thanks so much for the affirmation that everything is totally normal! I'll keep an eye on his wet and dirty diapers. Thanks again!
