    he has reflux which is getting alot better but he still will hardly take any milk. we're combi feeding and even when he breastfeeds its hardly anything. his weight gain is poor too.

    its like hes not interested in milk at all? he wakes every 3 hours or less at night wanting food and ive tried getting him to go 4 hours during the day (he usually goes 3) but it makes no difference. i dont know what to do :nope:

    Hiya,

    When you say his weight gain is poor, how poor do you mean? Is he otherwise well and happy? Does he settle between feeds and wake for feeds? Does he wee and poo frequently? He may be taking more at the breast than you think... babies start to become quite efficient feeders at that age and can often get as much as they need in 5-10 mins...

    That being said, if you're worried - contact your HV or GP - they can hopefully help or put your mind at rest.

    Hope things work out.
