Feeding probs!

(7 Posts)

I am having so many probs with my ds2!! I feel like I can't cope!
He is only drinking 2 oz of milk at a time, therefore meaning that he is hungry again very quickly. He is taking over an hour to take the 2 oz, and so only sleeps for about 40 min between each feed!
Has anyone any tips to making him drink more and go for longer?
I have found that discussing this with my health visitor pointless!
Any advice would be great!
Thanks xxx
(Don't know what I would do without this website and all your advice!!)

Hi how old is he? when my ds was little he would fall asleep after few oz (at night)so I would change his nappy or something to wake him up & get a bit more into him. Also try wiggling the bottle a bit or tapping the end of it if he is dozing off.

Oh no-one ever tells you about the different teats - it's so frustrating!!! I had the same probs but trying a faster teat sorted it every time!
