Day 168: Slimmer baby

Her feeding has started to change a bit. She eats 5 times a day at: 7am, 11am, 2.30pm, 6pm & 7pm and from both breasts at each sitting. But the length she feeds for is shrinking. 5 mins each side used to be the norm and that felt a bit short for me. Over the last few weeks this seems to be shrinking to about 3mins a side. I try to persist with her to at least make up 5 mins but recently reaching the golden 5 mins has been a struggle.

She’s become a lot more active recently. No rolling or crawling yet but she is going mental on her jumperoo, sitting and standing (whilst held). So much so that I think visibly she is not as round/compact/healthy… chubby as she was before. I’m not concerned as such but I think you can understand why I’ve become more wary about her not eating as much. Weaning is just at the early stages so I was not expecting it to effect her eating much, but maybe it does have a bit of an impact.

We’re keeping an eye on you little lady!
