No, first: check if you're diluting it right , and whether you are giving the right amount for his weight/expected weight. If he is crying for more, it means that he is hungry and needs more, remember, infants in the first year of life experience a growth spurt with increasing needs fir calories. If he still cries despite adjusting the dose, see his pediatrician, enjoy your baby
