    Aaron has gone from 6oz feeds to only taking 3-4 oz in the last couple of days. I'm exclusively expressing as he's unable to latch on due to low muscle tone in his tongue.

    He seems to be getting so tired from feeding. He's just turning 8 weeks, so don't know if its normal or something to do with his DS

    Should I be worried?

    How frequently do you feed? T only takes 5-6oz per feed at 4hrly intervals and he's 12 weeks, I'd say 4oz at his age is prob about right if he's feeding every 3-4hrs xx

    I tried him with them a couple of days ago and he just choked! It's amazing how much can change in 2 days!
