    jack had a growth spurt at about 7 weeks and went to drinking 7oz every 3-4 hours...however he's now 9 weeks and isn't drinking his bottles...still goin 3-4 hourse but only drinking 5-6 oz ... is this normal?...or do you think it could be something to do with the fact he had his jabs a couple of days ago?

    cheers ladys x

    Violet used to be like that, she'd start draining her bottles and wanting an extra oz but as soon as the growth spurt was over, she'd be back to "normal" and wouldn't want that extra oz anymore.

    It could also very well be an effect of the jabs.

    Yeah babys change their appetites when they have growth spurts. My LO is 2 months old and still only takes 3-4 ounces each feed and sometimes doesnt even finish the bottle. She is happy, content and growing so she is getting what she needs. If your baby is the same then just feed him whatever he will take.
