Baby takes milk only in sleep

Dear Doctor,
My son is 4.5 months old. Since last one month he has stopped taking milk (breastfeed) when he is awake and drinks only in sleep. I've to forcefully put him to sleep during day time to make him drink milk. While awake if i try to feed him, he refuses, resists very badly, turns his head away and also starts crying if i force him. In effect the day time milk intake is very less and also urinating frequency also comes down. This has also started effecting my milk supply too since he is not sucking frequently. I'm worried about him since its very hot climate here and he might get dehydrated. Also i've noticed that even if he is crying when stomach is empty and i try to feed him, he tries to suck and one or two times and then continue to cry again as if something is disturbing him. Kindly advise what medication can be given to solve his problem. He has not taken anything else till now other than breast milk.

Health wise mother is fine. No complaints. The only change for mother is that she and the baby with my elder child (4 yrs old)just now came backfrom india after staying with her parents for three months post delivery. Now they are alone here at home after i go for work. The change in my baby also started after coming back.

single dose silica
to mum (only) due to breastfeeding--babe receives good as well as ill form mum's milk...


2 pellets 30c in 4 oz water
in drinking glass-
stir vigorously
mum is to take (not babe)
1 tablespoon dose

disgard the rest from drinking glss
wash glass and spoon

no repeat dose

med mum is using for allergies-- stop usage before taking dose of silica--it wil effect the response ..

mum is to avoid all sour foods and drinks
avoid all caffeine,coffes,teas,colas..
mum is encouraged quality foods--take the time..-for sunshine--casual fresh air walks as family--daily if possible...
nothing medicinal at all except silica..
no topical lotions or anything at all--this is suppressive by nature of use--an d will have neg effect..
