There is no medicine that you can give to your baby that will improve her appetite. She may prefer very soft well pureed food at this stage.She is certainly not taking enough milk per day now. I am concerned that she is drinking so poorly and not eating well. It would be best for her to be seen by a paediatrician to make sure that she is completely well.
