Infant Feeding Problems

A breast-fed baby under six months of age who is always restless and failing to gain weight even when emptying the breast may not be getting enough calories. A pediatrician should examine the baby and make recommendations for possible changes in diet or feeding methods. A bottle-fed baby who turns away from the bottle, or who vomits after most feedings, may in fact be getting too much food. Babies who avoid the bottle usually are full; persisting in trying to feed is not effective. However, if the infant vomits even after drinking less milk, a pediatrician should be consulted.

Some babies refuse solid food at first when it is introduced between ages four and six months. This is normal during the transition from a liquid diet. if the baby truly gets upset, solid foods should be stopped and then reintroduced a few weeks later.
