I just recently posted about my 7 mo old's nursing strike due to ear infection and illness. I'm concerned because while she is nursing more frequently, she still doesn't seem to be nursing as long or getting as much milk. I was home with her yesterday, but am back to work today.
Typically, she'll nurse at 7:30 a.m. before we leave for work, have a 6 oz. bottle at 11:30, and a 3 oz. bottle in the afternoon (somtimes more) and then I come at 3:30ish to nurse her again. So, total, she'll have 9-12 oz. at daycare.
Well, this morning she only wanted 3 oz. in her first bottle. I haven't heard about this afternoon, yet.
Am I overly concerned?
I know she's not dehydrated, but she had lost a few oz. due to illness and hasn't been nursing well, and has been extra sleepy.
Is the 3 oz. bottle a red flag??
