My youngest son is 4 months old, and I recently went back to work and enrolled him in a reputable daycare at a church in town. They keep a tracking sheet showing what times he eats/sleeps/diaper changes and how much he eats at a feeding. They show he only eats 2 oz at a time, maybe 3-4 times a day (he's there 9 hours), but at home on weekends he eats 6 oz easily every 4 hours w/ no problem. At night during the week he eats nonstop once he gets home to the point he throws up, and gets up to eat 3-4 times a night. How can I get them to understand they need to feed him more? Are they just bored holding him or what?Answer Question

He could be either stressed or distracted while eating with all the activities going on around him. He may eat more at home due to feeling secure and loved.
