Not taking enough feed
Created by Updated on Jan 10, 2017
Hello all.. my kid is ignoring feed at mornings and sleeps for a long time ..at nights he is taking more feed... i used to breastfeed him at mornings and at nights i give formula as breast milk is not sufficient. Past few days he is not feeding enough at day time... please guide me

If he's pooping less and gaining weight, it means ur feed is utilised in his development and growth. Just press is stomach to make sure it's soft. Apply "Hing" if it's hard and it will settle down. Try monitoring his weight every 20-25 days May be he's a night guy, like my kids :) Don't worry Regards.

hi Divya, I too used to be troubled alot thinking my child is not drinking properly and taking less milk ,consuming less time. So don't worry too much if your child is fine (not crying) , playful , passing normal motion and gaining weight. My Pediatric said a baby knows his needs he will cry if he is hungry. As they grow they get better capacity to drink fast and stay for longer duration.
