Questions to ask yourself, Is he underweight? When he has finished his 4 spoons is he satisfied? Does he have supplements such a Milk ?

If he isn't underweight, is satisfied with the four spoons of food, and is supplemented with full cream milk or a carry on formula, then maybe you need to back off and give both of you a break. You will not MAKE him eat, but in the process of trying, you will make him angry, frustrated and upset, and you will make yourself angry, frustrated and upset! For what purpose? It's clearly not working is it?

Get him weighed, find a drink supplement that is full of nutrients and vitamins appropriate for an infant of his age, relax, let him eat as much or as little as he likes and do some more research, but do it in a confident, relaxed manner, because the way you are doing it now, is counter productive.
