hi all this is the first time i have been on here so hope someone can help. I have an 11 week old baby boy and over the last week has started to refuse his feed, he will take the first 3oz like normal then he pulls away so i burp him, then once he has burped i offer him the rest and he turns his head away and starts to cry. I cant figure out what is wrong. He is also dribbling alot which he neva used to do. He has also thrown up a whole bottle last night. please help me. thanx

The dribbling makes me think teething, which can upset their tummies.

Does he seem well? hydrated, bright, nappies filled etc etc?

candy11 I could have wrote this post about my 13 wk old DS, he is doing the exact same thing, sometimes he will take the other 3oz an hour later and sometimes not, he also refused his last feed, so we woke him for a dreamfeed which I have never done before. He's taking 5 feeds a day of between 3 and 5oz at the most. Also dribbling alot too.

Starting to get worried about him, he's doing great otherwise.

Anyone any ideas???
