My 3.5 month old baby is EBF baby. I have forceful lerdown and oversupply.
If he is awake, And when I try to feed, he will hungrily open his mouth and take 4-5 sucks and then stretch himself and cry.He does'nt want his milk, does not cry when hungry and sometimes stays without milk for as high as 4-6 hours in day time. Even when he is not feeding he is normally a happy child and infact gets distresses and cries if I try to feed him. he does not come for nursing to me even though he is hungry when he is awake. He moves his head away , and cries if i feed him when he is awake. I have to rock him to sleep and then he takes his feed. Since he feeds well only when sleeping I have not stopped his night feeds even though he does not cry for milk. The doctor said he does not hv reflux. I am confused and want him to feed while awake rather than develop a behavioural pattern of feeding only while sleeping. Since he is EBF baby , i did not introduce bottle for him, i started introducing bottle when he was 2 months old, but he refuses bottle too till today.Please Help.
This is happening for almost 3 weeks and past 3 weeks he takes only 7 feedings per day and today he has taken only 3 feedings for past 16 hours. I raised this prob to pediatrician and she says he does not hv reflux. he pops 2 or 3 times and 8 wet diapers. Please Help. Is he weaning? anyone else facing this issue , any solutions, advice, suggestions??
