Sindhu Poorani being a mum it's difficult to see baby not eating for 5-6hours but it's just a matter of few days. Once he develops the habit of eating he will start asking for food. Just make your mind and heart strong for some days. It's matter of your baby health.

hi. I tried waiting until he asks for food. but it's difficult for me as in have constant thought in my head that my baby is hungry and I'm not able to do anything. he asked for food only after 5 hours. that to he was very cranky so I offered some food and he ate.

avoid giving juice and instead give fruit slices if he can chew or fruit chat. if he still can't chew u could give fruit purees . yes maintain a gap of few hrs say at least 3 hours and let him feed himself.

Hi Sindhu Poorani try to give a gap and make a change in schedule of eating and drinking. Since you are feeding at times yourself so he is not getting to k ow the feeling of being hungry. Let him come to you and ask for food then only give. He has the assurance that mumma will give food always that's why he don't ask. Just few days give a trial of not giving him food until he ask for the same. It will be bit difficult for you being a mom but try it.

hi Sindhu Poorani ! it's because he does know how it feels to be hungry as u have been feeding him on schedule. that's okay. maintan a gap between meals so that baby feels hungry and demands food.
