As far as I have read and been told by doctors honey shouldn't be given to babies till the age of 1 year. And to a 3 months old baby nothing should be given beyond breast milk or formula. Please consult an expert before giving honey, or for that matter, anything else to the baby. Also what was the birth weight of the baby? If the baby has doubled his birth weight by the end of 3 months or gained 2.5 kgs and above, then his/her growth is fine and there is nothing to worry about.

Please don't give honey or any other food apart from breastfeeding. Better to consult a good pediatrician. It could also be that the baby is not latching properly and hence unable to take proper n sufficient feeds. Also the mother should ensure she is following a healthy diet, it matters a lot.

Totally agree with Bhavana. exclusive breastfeeding

I totally agree with bhavana.Mother should eat properly with all greens and feed the baby properly.The birth weight of the baby is also important.
