Crying and fussiness over feeds

Hello all,
My little girl is 10 weeks and is bottle fed but over the last few weeks she’s starts throwing her head to one side so the bottle comes away and then cry’s loads and the whole thing starts again, I have to try
and make she is sitting up plus she has learnt to push her head forward and does this in anticipation when I go to pick her up. I just assumed that now she’s older she’s getting to know her environment plus when she does feed she like to have her head to one side. It does make feeding stressful and she likes to fed every 2 hours still sometimes 3 but more often 2 but at night she goes now without a feed for 4 to 5 hrs. Has anyone else had this also?

Does she have any other symptoms like mucus in her poo?

Hi there,
No mucus but I’m thinking that her body clock is telling her to feed or waking her up as she starts sucking her hand but actually she would be more hungry if I really tried to stretch the feeds out to 3 hrs. I’ve just done a dream feed and she was completely calm and very hungry as her last feed was 4 hrs ago. The other problem could be reflux as she spits up a lot if I don’t sit her up after a feed so trying the reflux formula as well. I think there is mix messages so she ends up getting upset when in fact she’s not hungry?. It’s just very confusing for me.
