I need my baby to eat.

I am having a hard time getting my baby to eat. He left the hospital feeding every 4 hours. I took him to the doctors and he lost weight. Now he is eating every 3 hours. He does not like to eat and just pushes the bottle out of his mouth. What can I do to get my baby to eat?

  • if you just had the baby, it normal for the baby to lose weight at first in the first month or two, babies dont have big tummies, they usually only eat 2-4 ounces at a time, usually about every 4hrs or so, maybe burp the baby more two, if you try to force feed him on a full or gassy belly, itll come back up
