Question: My baby is 4 months and 28 days old .she refuses breast milk sometimes after drinking for first few minutes .why is she doing so?
Answer: Dear if she has just started doing it may be she is going through teething. During teething babies usually avoid taking breastmilk in the beginning when there gums are swollen. Some of the remedies to help if ur baby is teething-:
Often, something cold in your baby’s mouthhelps. Try a cold pacifier, spoon, clean wet washcloth, or a solid (not liquid) refrigerated teething toy or ring. Some experts say frozen teething toys are too cold and may hurt your baby’s mouth. Make sure to clean teething toys, washcloths, and other items after the baby uses them.
A hard, unsweetened teething cracker can be comforting.
You can also massage her gums by gently rubbing them with your clean finger. If the teeth haven’t come in yet, you can let your baby gnaw on your finger.
If you’re nursing your baby, try dipping your fingers in cool water and massaging her gums before each feeding. That may keep her from biting your nipple while nursing.
Hope this helps.
