Hi guys, Louie was born in 5/1/14 and weighed 6lb 13oz, due to low sodium issues after birth he lost a lot of weight really quickly. We slowly managed to get his weight back on track and as of Monday he weighed 7lb 11oz. He is formula fed and I started him off with 3oz every 2-3 hours for the first week and he was waking up regular as clockwork for feeds. After about a week an half I upped his feeds by one ounce and he was still in the same routine give or take half an hour.
Over the last few days he has become more alert, but his feeding routine had gone. He is waking up screaming for food, I'm making sure it's a feed cry and giving him a 4oz bottle, he will sometimes drink it all and other times he will only finish 2oz, when he only takes 2oz this has a knock on effect to the next feed. He will stay awake sometimes and then drop off to sleep. When I know he's not hungry or need a nappychange he seems to be just moaning for the sake of it but if you offer him a bottle he will take it, he seems to be hungry all the time. I've up his milk scoops in a 4oz bottle to 5 and see if making the milk this way stops him from being hungry. Or is he just a hungry baby and I need to swop his milk for the next level milk or the hungry baby range..
I just worry that if he carries on eating the way he is he will either get constipated or putting on too much weight too quickly and end up overweight. Or could he just be having a growth spurt???? X
