Have you or anyone you know had a child that has this? Im worried that there might be long terms problems. I read some info on WebMD about it. It doesn't see too serious, but I am still worried for my little girl.
dont give him cereal to help him sleep. i want to make sure that he is getting enough to eat at night before bed. My mom and aunt told me to do this...he usally drinks about 4-5 oz at bedtime. through out the night (he wakes up around 1am-3am &5am) he has about 2-3 oz. durning the day, he will only have about 2-3 oz per feeding (about every 1-2 hrs).
this is my first baby, so not really sure if all is normal.View Thread
my son is also 3 months...i give him a 5 oz bottle of formula with 1 1/2 scoops of rice cereal at night and it reall keeps him fuller longer. durning the day, he will drink a 4 oz bottle prob. one or twice a day, the rest of his bottles, he will only drink 2oz. cant get him to drink more.View Thread
I have a 3 month old and he only has formula right now. he will have a 4 oz bottle maybe 2-3 times a day, the rest he will only eat about 2 oz. we do about 7-9 bottles a day (24hrs). he weighs about 14 lbs and is 24inches long. im not sure he is eating enough, but he doesnt want to eat a full 4 ox each time.
