A 18-year-old female asked:

More info needed: Is he growing well? Is he voiding and stooling? Are you trying to feed him on a schedule or letting him feed on demand?
I would be reassured if he is growing peeing and pooping and just wants to feed on his time.
If you are still concerned have the doctor check him.
