    it's absolutely boiling here, has been for the last few days and other than making lucas quite grumpy he's really uninteresting in his feeds. he woke twice for a feed last night and only took 2 oz, though it was because he was too tired, but today he's not had more than 3 or 4 at the most, or a ffew minutes on the breast and then refuses the rest. is it the heat? any one else had this issue?

    i'm reluctant to give him water as i thought you weren't supposed to give it to them if it put them off feeds and he's already not feeding properly?? :shrug:

    The last 2 this afternoon she's really fussed on, she only took 60ml at 4pm and 30ml @7pm... might have to reinsert the dreamfeed tonight if I'm going to get any sleep tonight.

    It might be the heat. I know I don't fancy warm milk when its like this!

    Yep, she usually takes 25oz in a day but practically missing out an entire feed at the mo! She's not even drinking the amount she should be for her age either but if she's happy then i'm not gonna moan, :) xxx
