  • My guess is tummy aches or gas. She may need a different formula or maybe to be stopped and burped every so often while youre feeding her to keep the air bubbles to a minimum.

  • DD used to do that, her tummy hurt so I'd burp her half way through and that usually helped with gas... I also switched to lactose free formula and that helped a too but switching too much could also cause their stomach to be upset as well.

  • It is also that when you put something in one end, it starts moving the whole system, She is very little and all the feelings of digestion, intestine & bowel movement are weird and new to her, she might just be struggling with all those feelings. Make sure the teat is slow flowing so the m,ilk doesn't gush into her little belly. Stop and burp her regularly. You might find she is better if she has her feed sitting more upright - in a baby chair, so gravity helps keep the fluid down. Also as it is getting hotter, she might be thirsty but not hungry, so if she is not due for a feed, try offering cool boiled water ( again be sure the teat is slow flowing). She might only have a tiny bit but it might be what she wants rather than heavy milk

  • It could also be ear problems.
