Your question:

My baby is refusing to feed, what can I do?

Expert’s answer:

This tends to be more common in babies older than 3 months. Usually a baby has been feeding well and then suddenly will refuse to feed or become very fussy at feeding time. Common reasons for baby refusing to feed in the first two to eight weeks include:

  • silent reflux; or
  • illness.

Contact your midwife, public health nurse, Lactation Consultant or GP for assessment and advice.
