My three and a half month baby engages himself in play while feeding be it breastmilk or formula milk...what can be the possible reason?

Harneet (clanpedia)

no reason. they like to do that. keep offering. if he wants more, he will be back.

Sangeetha Karuna

Its quite normal Aashia Abdulla. And after a month, they will suck for sometime and started holding your chains and will see here and there if they hear even a minute sound. Feed your baby on demand. Afterall they are exploring their world👍☺️

baby do this in thr age, try to keep the environment calm and silent while feeding switch off the lights , it will work


This happens and is normal. try and keep a silent and calm environment  to minimise distractions.


while feeding he prefers sucking his hands rather than milk...what does that mean?

Sangeetha Karuna

Simple.. He is just exploring his hands. Its basically hand and mouth co ordination and your baby is practicing it and it is a good sign. Many people say he/she ia hungry if they put hands in the mouth. Just relax. Keep his hands clean. It is a phase.
