    Default Refusing feeds during the day

    DS is almost 4 months and is hardly drinking much during the day. He's gone from drinking 150-180ml at each feed to not having more than about 50-60ml. He just pulls off and cries when I try again. He makes up for it a bit by feeding every 2 hours during the night while he's half asleep. Apart from it being exhausting at night I don't mind too much as at least I know he's drinking something.

    He's happy and well otherwise - chattering, smiling and interacting as per usual. Is this normal for this to happen? I'm not sure if it's teething or the 4 month regression. Just after reassurance that this is a normal phase I guess. TIA.

    My DD did this around that age - she was teething and it hurt her to lie on her side (and side of mouth) to feed. She was too tired at night to realise I think so night time was fine. I just started using football hold for the boob she was refusing so she was lying on her more comfortable side and it worked really well. Maybe change the way you are positioning bub when feeding? Fx it's just a short phase for you!

    This happened to me with my dd. it turns out every time she woke during the night I'd give her a bottle and then she'd get to the day time and not be as hungry as she was getting plenty during the night. Don't know if this is your situation, but I can sympathise. It started about 4mths too.

    So I cut out a bottle during the night as she was and still is smarter than me!!!
