My baby is 5 months and 4 days old, he's about 14 to 15 pounds, he only want 3 to 4 oz of milk every 3 to 4 hrs, doesn't sleep during the day and at night wakes up every 3 to 4 hrs for milk. Is this normal? How can i get him to drink more milk and sleep all night?

Yes,sounds like teething.Maybe try a teething gel,the teething rings are also good. Truef,are you in RSA?Just thought because of the Rooibos tea..

Sounds like he is cutting teeth. What you can get to help him through the pain is a teething ring or something salty. Salt help alleviate pain.
I wish you well.

I don't now if hes cutting teeth, he puts everything in his mouth and is always drooling, I've been giving him Stage 1 fruits he eats about 1.5 oz of it with a 4 oz bottle and cereal in hes bottle before bed time. Hes stools are normal.

Hi,

Is he perhaps cutting teeth? Is he eating solids? Is there a change in his stools? If he is not eating solids, perhaps you can introduce him to some porridge to fill him up. In my country, we have a tea called Rooibos tea, this is a great alternative to give to babies when they can't/don't drink milk.
