HI Doc

So my baby is 18weeks, is on NAN1. She drinks 150x5 a day, she weighs 6kg, but never ever finishes her bottle always leaving between 20-70mls. She used to be ok for 4 hours between feeds, now for the last couple of days she is hungry every 2.5 hours. The problem is I cant give her more milk because she wont drink it, but the NAN is not sustaining her like it used to,

What should I do, should I change her formula or what? I dont want to introduce solids, but if I have to I will.

It does seem that your best option would be to start your baby on solids now. Start off with a rice cereal.

Jou baba kan al pap in die oggende begin eet, sy is oud genoeg vir dit. Dit sal haar meer voed as net melk. Gee ook vir haar water deur die dag. Dit maak nie saak dat sy nie al die melk drink nie, dit is normaal. My seuntjie drink ook nie al sy melk klaar nie.

Kyk hoe sy die pap in die oggende hanteer, as sy dit goed vat, gee n bietjie in die middag ook. Dit sal verbeter met tyd.
