My Baby Is Hungrier Than Usual

My dd is 4 months old and the past few days she's been wanting to eat more often. She takes 5 or 6 ounzes every 2 or 2 and a half hours. She sleeps most of the night and only has one middle of the night feeding but during the day she is wanting to eat more often. Could she be ready for solids?

She may be going through a growth spurt as they tend to do that when they have one. She is old enough to introduce cereal. Most doctors recommend starting with rice cereal as it is least likely to cause allergies. If your dd has any health problems I would call my ped first.

I agree with Rabbit, she is probably going through a growth spurt. You could also try to increases her intake an ounce or so, maybe she is getting to the point where she needs a little more at each feeding. That might help tie her over an extra hour for you. Good luck
