    Default Hungry bub

    My bub is 4 weeks old and is having 180ml every 2.5-3hrs but just doesnt seem full. A friend told me to try putting a small teaspoon of farex in his night bottle...has anyone tried this?

    I would not go down that route with such a young bub. I just don't think their tummy is mature enough. If they are still hungry simply give them more breast milk or formula. Every bub is going to have different quantities.

    I agree with beljane. 4 weeks is too young for anything but breastmilk or formula. What makes you say they don't seem full? What is your bub doing to show that?

    Maybe have a chat to your child health nurse. Babies stomachs wouldn't cope with digesting it at such a young age.
