Hi , My baby is 3 months old. She is being fed on formula since 2 months. She has been drinking 90ml per feed but since few days she has reduced the intake and now she takes 65ml per feed and after that she acts cranky and refuses to drink. I m worried about her health.please suggest if it is common or what steps should i take. Thanks

Starting on formula feed carries a lot of risk to baby in case of getting infectios and poor digestion. To use bottle feed you should read the pack care fully how much ml of water to a scoop of milk powder it is 30 ml per 1 scoop, so you shoul 1st follow the instructions carefully. On the box if you observe bottle is only for mixing the milk not for feeding. Try to use soon to feed or paldy or a bottle with spoon not with nipple. And watch her weight if its improving then no need to worry how much she takes. My suggestion is to avoid bottle with nipple. And keep a watch on weight if its improving nothing to worry, if not you neeed to consult your pediatrician
