Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Babies who are less than 4 months old, normally will breastfeed quite often, which is 1 to 2 hours. This condition does not necessarily mean that your baby has certain abnormalities. The more often and the more your baby feeds, the more often your baby will urinate. Especially, if you give your baby formula milk in addition to breast milk.
There are many factors that can cause your baby to be fussier than usual, for example:
Uncomfortable environmental conditions, for example too hot, cold, noisy, glare, stuffy Discomfort in the body, for example due to colic, flatulence, nausea, itching, fever, diaper rash Wet diapers, for example due to urination or defecation Hungry, thirst, etc. Delaying breastfeeding for too long can make the baby angry and impatient, so that he will feed crying or in a hurry. As a result, a lot of gas will enter the digestive tract. This is what makes him spit up more often. The use of a pacifier or a pacifier and improper breastfeeding position can further exacerbate this complaint.
We suggest that you don't worry or panic too much just yet. The excessive worry that mothers experience can affect your baby, making him even more fussy. Calm your mind first and ask your husband and relatives for help together to take care of your baby. Like adults who have just moved into a new environment, babies also need time to adapt from their comfortable initial environment while in the womb and then out into the world.
Here are the steps we recommend:
Breastfeed your baby exclusively, avoid giving formula milk without clear indications. As much as possible, breastfeed your baby directly from your breast. Feed with a good latch, elevate the baby's head while feeding, and burp the baby after feeding. Avoid using pacifiers or pacifiers. If you are unable to breastfeed your child directly from your breast, express your breast milk (don't give formula) and feed it via a spoon or cup feeder. When baby cries and fusses, talk to him, calm him in a hug while singing a hum that baby likes Learn to do baby massage to make your baby calmer Create a comfortable environment for baby Increase your milk production by eating and drinking healthy, avoid stress , and adequate rest. If the steps above do not succeed in calming your baby, check him directly to a pediatrician so that further treatment can be carried out.
