I am about to lose my mind,for the past week I have been trying so hard to get my 4 month old to eat.This all started after I had daddy take of her for 4 days in a row and now she is all outta wack.I know he wasn't feeding her enough,and now she will barely take a bottle at all,even when I know she is hungry.
Before this she was a champ feeder & she would eat 4oz every 3 to 4 hours with no problem,and she was taking about 30oz per 24hrs.She is 18lbs & 27 inches,she is not teething and her gums are still really soft & gummy.Yesterday I only got 12oz in her and I'm starting to worry,she does not have a fever or cough & I do not think she is ill.
She will chew on her hands,suck her fingers,suck my fingers,lip smack,and suck or chew her toys,but refuses a bottle even after 8 hours of no food (believe me I'm trying like crazy).I have rocked,bounced,and worn her in a sling,nothing is working.I can get her to take about 2oz when she is in that relaxed twlight zone before she drifts off to sleep,and that is the only time.I am feeling horriable because she will just wail until she is tired,and then finally give in to a few sips.I have even tried different bottles & she doesn't use a pacifier.
Ladies I feel like I am doing something wrong.Is this just a phase?Anyone else had a 4 month old who won't eat?When I try to give her the bottle she will turn her head and tongue thrust out the nipple & go right back to lip smacking and chewing her hand.Never had this problem with my 1st 澳门williamhillbaby.
