My baby is 5 months old. he has been refusing to be fed wen awake for past 1nhalf months. he would only take feeds while asleep. now that his sleep time is reducing its becoming an issue to feed him. Now even wen asleep he tightens his lips sometimes. I have tried giving expressed milk in bottle, he doesnot take it either. recently I hv felt he is not peeing enuf and so I m worried that he is dehydrated. he has teething issue, but still I think his resistance is not because of teething.

hi Neha Nagpal ! it could be due to throat or ear infection. please consult ur pediatrician. also monitor his weight gain, and keep a watch on number of wet nappies.. please make sure u r sterilizing his bottle well and change teats of bottle after every few months..

Hi Shikha, I am exclusively breastfeeding. I have checked with doc for ear n nose infections. I have checked with 2 pediatricians. His weight is good. during the day I keep him without diaper, and he doesn't pee for for 1nhalf hr n so. I have to force feed him, he takes a few sips and starts to resist.
