    My little man is eating really well at night (3.5oz bottles every 3hours), but eats really very little during the day! I'm thinking I'll take him to the docs next week to make sure he's gaining as he should, but I thought I'd ask some opinions around here!

    This morning at about 9ish he had a 3oz bottle. Then it was just snacking throughout the day as I couldn't get him to eat a full meal, for a total of about 6oz. It's now almost 7pm, and as he's sleeping, I don't expect he'll be up for a feeding for another hour or so. He should have had more like 12oz in that span of time. He's also been really gassy and fussy.

    He's about 11.5 lbs now (at 5 weeks - he's a big guy!), and up he was 3weeks, was eating around the clock at a 3hr schedule, for a total of about 20-24oz a day. But because he's not eating much during the day now, he's dropped to more like 18oz.

    Thoughts?

    (and yes, I know, I need to change my ticker!!)
