What can I do to make my 4 month old baby feed better. He has never had any formula, just breast milk. He just does not suck to satisfaction, this makes him so frequent on the breasts.

Thanks a lot Jennifer. Most of the time I put him to breast, he sleeps. I feed him with bottles too but only breast milk. He doesn't really like bottles. I plan to start him on formula as soon as he's 6 months old but my fear is he doesn't like bottles. I am really worried about his feeding.

my daughter was liike that as well,does he fall asleep while he eats? what i did whether i like it or not was i had to substitute with either a little sugar water or even a little formula along with breast milk, does he take the bottle with breast milk? if so and your willing try doing that and see how that works for you and him, if you substitute just a little during the day or before his bed it doesnt mean that he will stop nursing.... hope this helps
