My 3 months old, exclusively breastfed baby boy, caught cold few weeks back and since then he has not been feeding well. The cough is still there. He used to take 10-12 mins of feed every 2-3 hrs. Now his entire schedule has become so erratic; I shouldn't be calling it a schedule now. He feeds for hardly 3-4 mins at a time. Sometimes asks every hour , sometimes goes for more than 5-6 hrs without feed. Ped says wake him up n feed him, but he doesn't take if he doesn't want. He cries also too much now. His weight is 6.5 kgs but he didn't gain much this month(900 gms). I don't know whether he is getting sufficient nutrition or not. or shall I switch over to formula now? please help.
