Hello moms,

My daughter is 4 months old and weigh 4.3 kgs only. She is very fussy during feeds ( she is on EBM top up with formula as required). She takes milk only while sleeping and strongly resists when awake using her hands and tongue to push the bottle away. I am very worried for her. Any advise is appreciated. She is also getting dark in complexion. I am wheatish and my husband is fair in colour. Pls help

Also she is very slow in taking the feed and takes small quantoties only. Her one feed normally takes arnd 60-70 mins. As she takes small quantities i hv to feed her frequently. Docs hv checked her throat to chk any swallowing problem and found evrythng in order. Her nose is blocked since she was 1.5 mths old and i hv to use saline drops before every feed but that does not make much of the difference. I dont know wt to do. Pls advise of any of u has encountered same problem. Many thanks
