    Hi Girls!
    Mhairi is 11 weeks old and has been on Aptamil blue since 1 week old.

    This past week, whenever I stop to wind her halfway through she screams...and I mean screams! Then she goes rigid and is almost impossible to wind her as she is sooo upset.

    Then she refuses to take anymore milk, or if she does take the bottle again she plays with it and spits the milk out.

    She's only ever taking 3oz at most, sometimes only 1oz and then going 3 hours without.

    She is perfectly bright and smiles and coos when she's awake. She has her 3 month check next week. Do you think I should wait till then or call the HV now?

    My LO went through a phase where she was taking a lot less milk than previously, and would refuse the bottle if interrupted halfway through the feed. I out it down to teething symptoms, as she was showing flushed cheeks, nappy rash, irritablilty along with the loss of appetite. She's now feeding her "normal" volumes again.
