New baby scoby not forming at the top of new batches

I recently got a kombucha kit and followed all the instructions and within a few days had a new baby scoby forming at the top of the brew which was successful to completion. But the last 2-3 batches I've made a new baby scoby is not forming at the top fo the brew anymore, just the old scoby eventually rises to the top and finishes off the brew. I'm using the original recipe of black tea, white sugar, and 8 ounces of starter kombucha liquid as per the original instructions but for some unknown reason the new baby scoby isn't showing up at the top anymore. I even have the glass jars on a kombucha heating pad to raise to the correct temperature. Has anyone experience this or now what to do about it?
