3.5mnths baby feeding
Hi, my 3.5 months baby used to feed around 800ml formula per day. But since the last few days she is just consuming around 500ml that too after lot of efforts. Baby is weighing 6kg and is active. Shall I be concerned?

Yes , I would say that 500 ml is insufficient for a 6kg baby. A healthy child would feed well. I would take her for a check up to find out the reason. It could be something simple as a nose block , which is easily managed with nasal drops .
