  • Yes bottle and breast alike. They are just to interested in what is going on around them. Completely normal! Try feeding in a quiet low lit area that may help.

  • Some times when babies are moved to their cribs, they have trouble adjusting. Did you move out of the swaddle? Try this new product for babies starting at age 3 mo called the magic sleepsuit. It helps calm the baby and prevent those twitches from waking them. www.magicleepsuit.com
