will improve gradually don't worry

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
In hot weather especially after a sudden change babies do find it difficult to adjust. They maybe more thirsty.
It is absolutely fine if she is drinking milk and liquids well to keep hydrated.
As long as she is passing urine atleast six times a day No need to worry.
Intake of other foods would slowly increase.
Don't worry.
