Quantity of milk drunk by my baby boy has come down

0 to 1 years

I feed my baby by exclusively expressing breast milk since we couldn't establish a proper latching. Since I always express milk, I know that his average intake of milk is 80 ml every 3 hours which makes me pump milk for him every 2 hours. But recently his intake has come down very much. He demands for milk of 100 ml once in 5 hours only. Initially his requirement was 850 ml which has come down to 550 to 600 ml per day. Is this normal?

As long as the baby is gaining weight and not cranky after the feed i guess its fine... But do feed your baby every 2-3 hrs... try feeding even if the baby is sleepy... Talk to your pead... he might be able to guide you better... Good luck...
