hi all.. my 4 month old baby has reduced her milk quantity since 2 days. she starts playing mid way. it becomes very lengthy to make her complete whole milk. she is increasing feeding gap too.. but not the quantity.

hi komala ...hw old is ur baby.... reduced intake should be due to playful nature... give tym ur baby will have ....u may have to spend longer time to feed.... reduced urine is because of increased heat.... most of it gets absorbed in the body..... pain could be due to various reasons.... it could be due to over heat or infection... increase ur water intake n Consult urpaed if it persists

hi... it's a common phenomenon... coz now ur baby is sensitive to it's surroundings... n also starting to get playful... ur baby might not be reduced the quantity of feed but will b taking longer time. try feeding in an isolated room where ur sure ur baby will not get distracted.. ve dim lighting n may b some soft music on a low volume... it can help....

obviously.... however you have to increase the frequency of feeding... ur body itself produce milk based on kid demands... besides you have to plan ur diet accordingly to bf when there is demand...

Hi thanu and chandanasudha.... you both don't need to worry on this since this is very very normal activity in the 4th month... their intake will reduce which in turns they have bf just for 5 min instead of 20 min just for an example.... their growth getting increased and they are too sensitive to hear, look and smell anything which is the diverting factor for them in breastfeeding and result??? they play or looking somewhere else.. another factor to check if you have sufficient milk is baby's urination & weight... if both get increased tat show you have enough milk...
