in consistent feeding

Hi there..

My baby is 1 month old and I am bottle feeding her. In the last few days she hasn''t been drinking a full feed which is normally between 90mls and 120mls.she drinks 30 or 60mls and then wants to feed every hour or the night she had 30mls and slept for for 5 hours before she woke up for a feed. She also moans and cries while drinking sometimes. What could be the she getting sick? Her temperature has been normal

It is difficult to be certain about your baby. She certainly is taking very little formula each time during the day but oddly is then able to take only 30ml at night and sleep for 5 hours.The two most likely possibilities at this age such as colic or possible reflux seem unlikley as she will sleep for such a long period at night.The formula may be filling her up too much and it would be worthwhile considering changing her to another formula.
