  • Call your pediatrician. My advice and others won’t help every child is different. Your Childs doctor will know what’s best. When that does not work then try advice. Also make sure you are burping your child after every once. It does help.

  • CHILDREN DO NOT HAVE THE MENTALLITY TO KNOW WHEN THEY ARE FULL, NOR ARE THEY GREEDY OR OVEREAT ON PURPOSE. HE PROBALLY IS REALLY THAT HUNGRY BUT HIS STOMACH CANNOT PROCESS AS QUICK AND THATS WHY HE GETTING SICK. FEED HIM 2 OUNCES AT A TIME AND LET HIM SUCK ON A PACIFIER OR YOUR FINGER FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES THEN IF HE WANTS MORE GIVE HIM SOME. THIS WILL HOPEFULLY SLOW HIM DOWN ALITTLE SO HIS BELLY WILL CATCH UP WITH HIS BRAIN AND LET HIM KNOW HE IS FULL.

  • That is WAY WAY too much for a baby that old. I would give 3-4 oz is all. He probably just wants to suck. Give a pacifier. And he should probably be eating about every 2-4 hours still. Your baby should take around 25 oz in 24 hours and eat 6-8 times/day
