What does it mean if a 4 month old baby is pulling away and crying while nursing?


Answer by  Rose (6804)

He or she could be having a hard time digesting the milk and could be allergic to milk. For some reason eating is causing him discomfort. You may want to take him or her into the doctor to check him for a cold, sore throat or allergic reacation to your milk.

The baby must be full already, that's the first sign if he starts pulling away but if he is crying at the same time then teething can be one of the reasons or gas is also possible. For teething, rub his gums with a cloth and for gas, gripe water will be a great help.

It very likely means that they are full, or perhaps not even hungry to begin with. Nothing to worry about though.

Answer by  Brittney (1095)

It could be that he is not hungry anymore. He could have an upset stomach or gas. You can get some over the counter gas drops to give to the baby. Alot of times if they have gas it hurts their stomach to eat. These drops are a good thing to keep on hand.

The meaning of four month old baby pulling and crying while nursing is due to pains and irritations the baby feels. If it is a wound and if it is wet while dressing it may pain very well. And if the wound is dried it could be itching while dressing. The baby cries mostly due to pains.
