Check milk: The question is, how much milk was she drinking before hand? She may. Have been drinking too much or too often also make sure that the formula tastes ok.

Hydration: If she is otherwise well and well hydrated, a follow up appointment to discuss at the four month check up is advised. Watch for signs of dehydration such as dry mouth, fewer wet diapers and change in behavior.
