Q.

Nan Pelargon

Hi doctor, my baby is no 3 1/2 weeks old. He is on Nan Pelargon, i used to have to wake him every 4 hours to feed but the last couple of days he seems to cry 2 to 2 1/2 hours after I started his feed. Could it be that milk is not filling enought for him anymore? I make him 100ml and doesnt always finish it. Should I change formula, or should I feed him every 3 hours instead? At night he has one 6 1/2 hour stretch and then 3 hours after that.

Your baby should still be on a 3 hourly feeding schedule. It is possible that the NAN Pelargon is not satisfying him enough. Try him on Lactogen1 which often suits hungry babies.
