My baby boy is 4. 5 months old. He is really playful and talks a lot. He ignores both sleep and eating for playtime. When I try to feed him, he starts biting his bottle and kicks and moves his hands as if it's play. His weight is 6. 5 kgs and I am really concerned that he is not feeding enough, and burning too many calories hence he is underweight. Also, he sleeps hardly 10 hours a day. He is not irritable or fussy. Doesn't cry a lot. Please help.

Answer:
Hope you are doing well. It is absolutely normal to play at times,however are you weaning and breast feeding him ? You must start weaning only post 6 months not before that. Just breast feed him. His weight is quite good. How did you assume that he is underweight ? Just breast feed him and everything is absolutely good :)
