Infant having sweaty body and cold feet. Reduced food intake. Reason?

My baby is 3 1/2 months old and his feet stays cold and his body feels sweaty often and over the past week he is not drinking as much milk during his feedings as he normally would. Also, every once in a while at night he would be really cranky and cry for 10 minutes or so...seems like he want to drink his bottle, but after a few seconds of drinking he pushes the bottle out of his mouth and cries for 5 minutes or so uncontrollably.

Pediatrician 's  Response
for the feet bieng cold, please wrap with a warm woollen socks, check the childs temperature readings every 6 hrs once, should not cross > 99 F. the child may be cranky because of fever or because of aerophagy( swallowing air causing stomach discomfort), do not bottle feed the child in sleeping position as it may cause middle ear infection so please check for ear pain,check the childs oral cavity for any ulcers, if u dont find any satisfying results by yourselves, contact the doctor for a detailed checkup.
