8weeks old not finishing feed

Hi fellow mummies, My 8 week old has not been finishing his bottle feeds recently. He was doing about 110ml and recently he takes 20-30min to finish 60-70ml then starts to fidget and use his tongue to push out the bottle teat. We have tried to burp him and RE-feed but he simply just pushes the teat out with his tongue again and just wants to play/sleep. He then gets hungry again at about 1hr later to complete the remaining 40-50ml. The time difference between each feed is about 3.5-4hour for each fresh bottle we give him. Any tips/advices to help him finish his milk at one seating? Ps: we have tried changing to a faster flowing teat but no success at all Thanks in advance

It is alright. When it comes to feeding best to follow baby’s cues. They will cry when they’re hungry, will not starve themselves. I will always feed, and he drinks as much as he wants. If there’s balance I’ll try again later.

my boy doing it too. 😄We give him 60 ml only in each bottle. if he's still hungry, he gets new bottle.
