Being to give her 1/2 teaspoon of Karo syrup or pancake syrup. that small and only 4 months old she may be suffereing from Hypoglcemia, which is low blood sugar. First thing I would like to give her 1/2 teaspoon of Karo syrup or pancake syrup. If this is Hypoglycemia, she should pick up within 10 mins of giving it to her. Please try that and I will stand by.
