Hi mommy
The baby's tummy is small feed the baby on demand and if frequently getting up could be hungry.
the baby is sleeping in your room or his own, you want to make sure it's a relaxing and peaceful.
Showing Day n night difference can help you to make your baby sleep better at nights. They should sleep atleast for twelve to fourteen
hours on the whole

He is not taking even milk properly. Crying all night. I have him tummy time and massage , hing on navel. Still he was awake. He is on BM + FM. Taking very small amount of milk. He sleeps with me. His tummy makes gargling sound all day and night.

Probably he is not having the right quantity. When he gets up, make sure you give him a bottle of formula to see if he goes back to sleep with it. Try this once and see. Do this only the first time he wakes up.

Yes,absolutely normal. Some babys are bad sleepers,just like mine. Shikha,sweety,then you need to force feed him your own milk,the latch is not proper. Put the entire aerola in his mouth and hold it there till he eats. His tummy is making sounds means he has gas, put heeng paste on navel as a ritual ( daily). And dont worry on the sleep time,it will get better with time. Just ensure you feed him properly. Latch him 15 mins each side. Then see if sleep got better!

Also,fold his knees towards stomach for few seconds at every diaper change,do this for 4-5 times. Give him clockwise tummy massage atleast once daily. It will improve his digestion. If he falls asleep while feeding,tickle him to feed. All the best and let us know how it goes!

ritu singhal; thanks Ritu, it is happening from some days that's y I am worried . Earlier atleast he was sleeping in day time properly so I was ok that he is getting sufficient sleep but from last some days he is not sleeping in day time as well...

shikha wadhwa

Also he is not taking both BM; and fm .

ritu singhal

Shikha dear, he might be going through growth spurt and gas must be keeping him from taking any milk,but please ensure he gets milk. If not through breast,please express and feed through katori chammach coz if he is not taking milk,it will increase the problem,gas built up will increase and he would be dehydrated. Try try try..you will succeed!
