Ok im 19 years old and my son is 3 weeks and 2 days, i have called the doctor and he said that the baby should only be drinking 3 oz bottles every 3 hours...i had him drinking 5 oz bottles but now 3. But he wont take it and then he gets mad and crying cuz he is hungry. What to do? Should i give him more or not? Then he will drink 3 to 4 feedings and then poop is that ok? Then he gets stomach pains what can cause that and is there any medicane besides gas drops that i can give him to flush him out and make him poop? Then see i dont have a bottle warmer so i bring water to a boil on the stove and just leave the water on the stove and warm it up everytime i need to fix him a bottle. Is that ok? And i mean what should i do to make him sleep better at night and not be so gassie and he will just cry and crawl up and strain like he has to poop. Also the doctors told me to thicking up the milk add a tsp. per oz of baby rice cereal or just baby cereal. I mix rice cereal with the formual and it looks like it dont help him cuz he wants more...he just cant get full!!! What to do? Can anyone help me please!!!!!!!!
