Fussing While Eating

0 Replies
rohan - October 21

my 2.5 months old son is bottle fed - Pumped br___t milk aswell as formula. For the past 2 wks he has started fussing a lot and doesn't want to drink. He went on the bottle when he was 2 wks old (wasn't taking enough from the br___t so had weight issues - he has only had milk from bottle since then ) He cries and screams when we put th bottle in his mouth - we know he is hungry because he generally drinks 3 ounces every 3 hrs and is sucking his hand and agitated, but happy to play and smile at us. If we force the bottle in his mouth sometimes he'll struggle but then calm down and take the milk, and at other times he'll just cry and scream and I give up feeding him - he gets happy as soon as I put him with his toys or talk to him. I don't want him to struggle or cry - want this to be a happy meal time for him. Only time he takes the bottle without struggle is while he is sleeping. At times he is so charged up he doesn't want to take a nap and can go without sleeping for 3-4 hrs. I have to fianlly put him in a snuggly and walk around to put him to sleep, and then try to feed him - this way he atleast takes a little but not a meal. Why is he struggling with the bottle? he does have reflus so is on rintidine. He is in the 20th percentile so he is not really over fed or anything. please help ! I feel so tired afer a day's feeding, since he doesn't get his fill in the day he has never slept for more than 3-4 hrs at a stretch at night.
