My 3-month-old son has stopped drinking milk, what should I do?
Q: My 3 months old son has been fed by breast milk and lactogen. He took the feed quite adequately. But for the past 2 weeks he doesn't take milk. He has to be fed forcefully so that he drinks at least 1 or 2 ounce. What should I do? Can I introduce new food?
A:At three months of age milk, is the babies' main food. You cannot give any thing but milk to a three month old. If possible get a urine routine examination and culture done. If this shows no infection just wait and watch. Sometimes even babies have variation in their appetite, and it returns to normal in a few days.
