My bub is bottle-fed and wriggles around constantly during her feeds. She is always jerking this way and that and knocking the bottle out of her mouth etc. Has anyone else encountered this and any advice?

Baby wriggling around during feeds

DS does it when he has wind or is uncomfortable because he hasn't done a poo in a while.
Is this something new?

So far, I have tried feeding him upright to reduce regurgitation, turning off all sound so there is no stimulation, and angling him into me like he is being breastfed. Sometimes these things work and sometimes not. I think the breastfeed cuddle soothes him a bit though if nothing else.
I'm going to see a nurse about it on Monday because he really isn't taking in much milk for his weight.

My DD began to do this at around 4 ish months. The advice I got from a health nurse was that it can be a behavioural thing ie. getting distracted when feeding. She advised just letting the bottle come out when baby turns their head away then popping it back in when they turn back toward you. Feeds did take a but longer doing this but I think it was better for DD.
The other thing I found was that sometimes I needed to go up to the next flow teat, she was getting frustrated cos not enough milk was coming out.
I guess it depends how old your bubba is. Good luck!
