Post subject: dropping feeds
my little boy was born 4 weeks and 2 days early, so now at 9 weeks uncorrected age he's started dropping feeds. His nappies are still wet and he passes poop with no problems, he doesn't show any signs that he's dehydrated. What can I do? Should I look at starting baby rice or something? Confused

thanks for the advice. i've started waking him up just to get in at least an extra feed. it seems to be working. i think his teeth are causing him pain. just my luck!

If he's sleeping all night I would make the most of it and not wake him for a feed. If he continues to gain weight you've nothing to worry about at all. Don't introduce solids too early, there is no rush and you could harm his digestive system. Laughing
