Most of the babies grow well on breast feeding and gain twice there birth weight by 4 months of age. Several research have showed in inital months breast feeding exclusively is better. I presume you maybe giving formula milk by spoon, which baby takes time to get used to. If you are using bottle remember that baby will have nipple confusion and your milk can get affected. It's advisable not to introduce formula milk till 6 months if no serious contraindications are there. If at all you still require to give formula changing brand of milk helps and also little bit of patience and perssistance will help.
