Hi. My baby is 9 weeks old on Friday. Due to problems he has been on formula since he was 2 weeks old. AT first he was fine and would have a decent amount every 3 to 4 hours. But at 5 weeks he started feeding more frequently, but still having decent amounts. We had been told this might happen at 6 weeks when he had his growth spurt and thought he would go back to normal after a week or 2. But he seems to have gotten worse. He is ok at night, and will sleep for 4 to 6 hours at around 8pm, then go for 2 to 3 hours before waking again, but after about 6am, he starts wanting feed basically every hour and he only takes small amounts each time. We try to encourage him to have a bigger feed each time but he wont. We burp him and try and again and he still isnt interested.
He also doesn’t sleep much at all during the day. I don’t know if this can be connected at all.
But has anyone had any similar problems or have any advice on how I can get my son to eat less frequently but bigger amounts each time? We try putting him off as long as possible each time but he starts screaming for food .
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciate. Thankyou in advance to for any help!!
