Hi, I''m a first time mom and I need advice please. My baby is 1 month old and drinks 150ml Formula every 3-4 hours but giving his way he will drnk 2 such bottles in one go. If I try water he goes mad he wants to drink milk he cries and if I do put a milk bottle in his mouth he drinks non stop. Please I dont know what to do.

Your baby is indeed hungry despite giving him more than an adequate amount of milk per day. Do not give him water at his young age, in any case it will not make him feel full.Change his formula to a casein rich formula which will make him feel full such as Lactogen1.

Hi Kelly

I think the Dr whould like to know baby''s weight and height.
Be carefull not to overfeed baby since they also suck alot
if they have stomic cramps or winds, but if he is really a hungry baby try Lactogen Baby Formula.Good Luck
