    Hello,

    This mama here is wondering what to do about my 7monther who only wets 5 diapers in 24 hours and doesn't want to nurse or take his bottle very much. He sleeps all night without waking on his own (I don't let him go longer than 6 hours without trying to get him to nurse) and also naps several hours a day. He is gaining the proper amount of weight (19 pounds) but rarely has enough wets. He also gags and sputters pretty frequently while nursing and even with a stage zero bottle nipple. He only poops every four days but it's normal consistency. Thanks in advance for any wisdom of experience or insights.
