You have not given me your baby's weight so I am unable to decide if she is gaining weight as expected. It does seem that your baby is taking far too little milk per day. Her requirements are 140ml per kilogram per day. It is possible that the S26 Gold satifies her hunger even though she is not taking enough in the way of fluid per day. It may be a good idea to change your baby's formula to another brand such as NAN1 to se if there is an improvement in her intake.
