Hi, I am a first time mom. I don't know where I went wrong but my baby will only eat when he is in sleep. He can not eat when he is awake , that too only 3-4 oz ... It's really getting tougher and tougher . And while eating in sleep he makes clicking sound... I am really concerned how can I change his habit and what will happen when he will grow up to the solid food or when he will be sleeping less how will I feed him ??
As per your measurements, his weight is on the 25th percentile which is normal for his age. Feeding guidelines for a 0-3 month old is breast milk or infant formula (2-4oz per feeding) for 8-12 times a day. After 4months you can try infant cereal (2-4 tablespoons mixed with formula or breast milk) 1-2 times a day. If he is taking 3-4ozs per feeding while he is awake, that is a good intake for 3 months. Do not recommend feeding while he is sleeping due to risk of choking and gas build-up. Infants need to burp at all feedings. Feed more enough during the day for him to get the proper amount of nutrients daily. Thank you for your question.
