Yes he also will try to shove a finger or two in his mouth when he is feeding.
i start dropping hair on the third month after birth. my hair stylist call me to tahan till when im fourth month after birth and go do rebonding.
did my rebonding and spray hair tonic after wash.
now not much dropping hair.
Now My baby boy is able to turn his body very fast .. its been the third day already .. he keeps turning around and lay on his tummy with his head raise high up.
Now he always make alot of loud noise..
Have your babies gone for the 2nd vaccination?
yesh , mine went last week for 2nd vaccine.
2hrs is indeed short for you to even rest at all!
You may wanna try giving more during the day or the last feed at night. Babies are smart, they can 'store calories' by drinking a little more and wake up less in the night esp after 4th month.
When are you going back to work? I am going back in 2 weeks'time!
due to some special arrangement, my leave got splitted up into 2 parts. hence i;ll start work in march.
my son is 4.5 months and is very fussy. his stomach is very weak despite on full breast milk since birth. he's only taking 110ml and will last 2 hours. anymore, he will refuse to drink or will vomit out the milk, there;s no way to force anything down on him if he does not want.
he had very bad colic after his first month, all the way till recently its getting better.
newbie: you r very very lucky that your son can sleep 8 hours at about 4 mths age....i have heard of some boys who still cannot sleep thru the night even at the age of 3!

here's my boy growing process at 4th mths.
- still on bf. FM once or twice daily. Drinking 120ml every 2 hr
sensitive to cow's milk. got to sell my extra friso1 soon. anyone interested?
- weighing at 8.3kg / 66cm (not overweight yet , but at the boarder line)
- too fat, still dont knw how to flip or maybe is too heavy flip.
- sleeping at around 11pm. waking up once or twice in the middle of the night to drink.
anything else to add? mummies care to show your baby progress?
My boy just had his 2nd immunisation jab on 25th Jan.
He is currently about 4.5mth. His weight is at 8.03kg and height of 65cm.
My Princess had hers on the 15 Jan. and now she is playing with her milk. really need to coax her to drink up her milk. *headach*
Ya my boy is also playing with his milk nowadays, he has mastered the skill of using the tongue to force the teat out from his mouth. He will use his tongue to wrestle with the teat.
How do you coax your baby to drink? For me, I just let him "starve" till he is really hungry. Anyway the doctor instruct was not to feed him too much. Apparently at 4months old, we are only suppose to feed them about 700ml each day.
my princess wld also push out the teat. i wld just let her sit up and burp her and carry on to feed.
now i reduce from 6oz to 5oz of milk.
rite now mother in law will feed her only when she is hungry.
and she is not napping much. about 2hrs in the day.
we make her sleep by 9pm and she wakes up at 5plus in the morning.
Long time never come in here hehe...
Are you all still fully breastfeed your baby? My baby lost his appetite recently dont't know why... sometimes got to force him to drink, sighh...
Any of you feed your baby with FM? My supply not sufficient once started working so gotta get my baby to get used with FM before i go dry hahaaa... I tried my baby on nestle nan but he vomitted after drinking and also got constipation the very next few days. Yesterday bought similac, have not't tried yet...
When can we start our babies on cereals?
yes, baby at this stage tends to drink lesser. According to the pediatrician, they are only supposed to drink about 700ml a day.
According to the pediatrician, its is recommended that we feed the baby on milk till the age of 6mths. In any case, from experience from other mummy, feeding cereal and semi-solid food is going to be a very messy affair.
My son is weighing 8.5kg at 4 mths old. i think its abit overweight.
Anyway my boy always reject milk in the afternn.. he only drink 3 Oz. Sometimes he will finish his milk for 5 Oz..
Now he is 4.5mths, he is able to flip on his tummy. he is lift his butt high high.. and move in a circle...
I always make him sleep at 12am when he is taking his milk at 11.40pm. He will sleep thru out to 9.30am.. But i will get up 7.30am to make milk for him to drink when he is still sleeping..
So that when he can drink finish his 5 oz milk at 12pm.
So 5kg x 5 oz = 25oz (750ml)
But my baby sill drinks below that...she takes about 600ml a day...refuse to drink more...Is it boys drink more? I see all the baby boys here are over 8kg...my princess is only 5.5kg...
She just had her 4th month 5 in 1 and rotavirus today...now having slight fever.
My boy is drinking alot more than that. so need to try to control his intake of milk.
you should be considered very bliss to have a baby that small. Its definately alot easier to carry around.
