Can anyone help me? My 4 mo has always been a happy feeder. For the last 2 weeks he has been distractable during feeds screaming to be sat up after only a few minutes. In the last couple of days he has fed only a handful of times all day. Yesterdy he fed 4 am, 8:30, 11:30, v small feed 12:30, v small feed 3:30pm, feed 6pm. Is this enough? I am worried that he is not going to get enough and that I will have to give up breast feeding. I have tried offering the breast regularly but this ends up with the screaming fits. Any hep greatly appreciated. Thanks

I'm having a similar thing with my 4mo DD. I'm thinking maybe she's just too interested in her surroundings to feed. First and last feeds seem to be much better. Maybe they've become more efficient at feeding now? I'll be haviong her weighed this week - it'll be interesting to see how much she's put on...
