Hi mama, first of all.. I’d like to let you know that you’re doing really great.
What you’re experiencing is very normal for babies and it’s just a phase and it would soon pass . I’ve experienced it 4 times. I just kept breastfeeding a lot, it wasn’t filling her but at least she wasn’t starving. Don’t worry about her weight gain, she’ll definitely pick up when she starts eating again. What matters is that she’s healthy and from the playing and being active, it’s safe to assume that. You can have pediatrician check her and confirm she’s okay just to put your mind at ease. I hope this helps, all the best.
