Q:

hello all my baby is crying when he wakes up but today I put bottle nipple in his mouth and he is sucking it properly ..he is just 4 months old is it possible that he is teething ...amd he is a premature baby his weight is also less and now a days he is not even asking his feed properly ... I feed him when he is sleeping but vo bhi 5-10 min suck krta hai

Prabhjot Kaur teething sensation can be possible...my baby is also teething from 3and a half months...I used to massage her gums with my cold finger....see if he is drooling...try feeding him every 2-4 hours as much he takes as they power suckle as they grow and feed duration decreases...but every baby is unique I would still say keep on checking with his pediatric....Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa please guide her... what's your take Sheeba Vijesh Sheeba Rizvi sonam patel

Rakhi Puri (beautyofmommying)

every 2hr is not required...2-4 you can .... demand feed...many reasons for crying for them... check with his doctor tomorrow...

Prabhjot Kaur

he is very cranky now a days does not even play much  and I have to get him I to sleep after rocking for at least one hour ... sometimes I also became restless still hoping jaldi 6 months ka ho jaye

Prabhjot Kaur

Sonam patel

it might b teething sensation.. but there can b other reasons too.. sometimes baby does so when they are colic too..talk to your doc and let us know wat he said..

Prabhjot Kaur

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Sheeba Rizvi

Thanks Rakhi puri for the tag. Hi Prabhajot your baby is not getting enough milk I think or he is colic coz in both cases kids become very restless. Consult your pedestrian she can check n let you know the exact reason. But you don't wait till 2 hours to feed your baby try whenever he cries he may be weak n not able to suck for for long on one go so try to feed him in small intervals. take care

Prabhjot Kaur

yes he is not teething it's due to his I section pain he was crying he has given medicines for loose motions also and zinc ke isko bhukh lage thanks for all ur suggestions

Prabhjot Kaur

Sonam patel

Prabhjot Kaur
