  • not sure what to suggest, didnt want to read and run, how much milk should he have a day? im bf so not sure what amount is ideal at this age,
    could u add milk to his puree fruit/veg to get a bit more down him?

    sorry not much help at all. xxxx
  • Hi love i have lots of problems feeding faith she not keen on her bottle. so he having in between 15 to 21oz that is ok. May be try and feed him in his sleep adding more milk to his food or add yougurts . It must be so hard for just wont to send you big hugs to you boys as long as his butting the weight you will be ok. Have talk to HV and you need any more help i am on here most of the time .try not to worry hun i now how it feels when they wont eat.
    this might help i set group you so people that are having feeding can help each other
  • thank you so much for yuor replies think i will space the 3 feeds out more and then supplement his feeds with solids with formula added see if that works ... the only problem being i now have 2 babies feeding at 2 different times on 2 different routines but hey ho nobody said it was going to be easy your replies have helped me think i will have to try and relax will let you know how it goes ;\)
