    Help! My baby is not drinking milk

    My baby had her 4th month vaccination last Tuesday and since then, she has not been drinking milk (usually, she drinks 4-5oz each time, but now she drinks only 1 oz or nothing at all!). Also, she does not cry very much usually, but now, she is crying a lot. ESpecially at night and during feeding.

    Anyone have the same problem? She doesn't look sick as she is still quite active and sleeps well, but only crying and not eating. What can I do?

    How is she today? Is she still peeing & pooing? Is she losing weight?

    If you are really worried, take her to a Dr.. and mention the lack of appetite & crankiness.

    loupou asked some really good questions.

    At some point my baby also reduced milk intake to the point where he took less than what he took in his first month. I was so worried i took him to the pd who measured him and told me he's fine as long as he is not losing weight.

    I would take her to your paediatrician, particularly as she is not herself. Does she have a fever?

    Took her to the Paed today and he could find nothing wrong with her at all. Still peeing and pooing and no fever. He checked her ears, mouth, tummy and whatever he can think of and nothing seemed to be wrong, she was even trying to play with the Dr!!

    He suggested to try some drops to get rid of the gas as he thinks it might be that. Will try and let you know!

    Thanks for all the suggestions
