Feeding and eczema.

Hello,
My baby will soon be four months old. He has four bottles a day, but seems to find it hard to feed between 7 and 11 in the morning and no longer wakes up for his 10.30 bottle at night, so his last feed of the day is now between 7 and 8pm. Should I try fruit juice with him mid-morning to keep him going until lunchtime?
I am hoping to start giving him puréed vegetables soon, he also has severe eczema.Je commencerai les légumes vers le 15 août... de plus c'est un bébé présentant un terrain eczémateux très fort... merci


If your baby has 4 bottles a day, you could try giving them all to him during the daytime if he is starting to sleep through the night. Try 7am, 11am, early afternoon and just before bed.. If he is very allergic (which often goes with eczema), do not change what you feed him before he is six months old, keep him on milk until then. See your doctor for more information.
