    Unhappy 3 MO and very difficult feeding

    Thanks for taking the time to read and hopefully shed some light on our situation.

    LO just turned 3 months but for the last 3-4 weeks (its just recently got on to the stage of me crying too) that the feeding has gone to crap.
    ]Bottle fed sine 4 weeks old.
    Belameys formula, Pigeon Bottles

    So she will feed well at her 10 pm dream feed. and if she wakes up in the early morning will drink a full bottle 170mls.

    Its the feeding in between thats our issue.
    She will start to protest even putting a bib on, if you manage to get that far she will do a good first 2 or 3 sucks and than start the drama.
    There are tears tantrums screaming fits arching her back you name it it happens.

    We can get her to eat a bit more once she calms down. but than we start the whole process again
    heres what we try
    Standing and feeding looking at a light or TV
    Basically having her asleep
    letting her just get so hungry that she just has no option but to eat
    Bonjella on gums
    Panadol

    Is this part of her development?
    She doesnt spit up or vomit, she poops regular and is always the same colour and consistancy.

    It just came on all of a sudden , one day she was great and litterly the next its been a fight.
    She is putting on weight. almost double her birth weight already.
    She does seem extra clingy, and doesnt sleep well during day because i think shes hungry and never has a full tummy to get a good sleep i.

    Is this development
    is this reflux
    is this getting ready for solids
    Is this teething (she does comp on her hands alot)

    Can ANYONE offer advice. as at the moment i pretty much don't want to leave the house because she is always so unhappy, cries when i feed her doesnt sleep and just generally miserable.
    But will wake up all smiles from her 10 minutes of napping.

    I wouldn't say that's developmental, definitely not getting ready for solids and doesn't really sound like teething.

    I'd get Bub checked for reflux and ties xx

    Default 3 MO and very difficult feeding

    Is bub going through a wonder week? Sounds like a fussy phase. They also go through periods of not being as hungry.
    If you're worried maybe take a video of her feeding and make an appointment with a child and family health nurse

    Could you try a faster flow teat? Maybe as she is getting older she wants more faster? A couple of suck like you mention may then upset her as she gets it started but it doesn't come as fast as she would like?
    What kind of teat does she currently use?
    Good luck!
