Q:

hi

my LO doesn't take proper feed... wen i take him in my lap he tries to jump off...

he takes proper feed wen feels sleepy dat too in night

although he doesn't cry, I'm worried

PS : Not interested in formula and bottle feed



hi ashwini it is important to feed the baby on demand.if you don't wait till the child is hungry he will not take the feed. 4 month old baby will feed at longer gaps and for shorted duration of time so allow the baby to cry for milk before putting to the breast that should help.

yup he takes feed at longer gaps n shorter tym....

same here..thanks dr saloni pahwa

same issue and @dr Saloni pahwa is absolutely right

Dr.Saloni Pahwa
short tym means how many minutes probably?
n longer gaps means how many hours probably?
my lo takes feed hardly 5mins with the gap of 2 to 4 hrs sumtimes it becums 5hrs as well

short duration means 5-8 mins. baby is now big enough to be able to take entire feed in that much time  and if long duration means 4 hours sometimes even more
