Suddenly refusing her bottle
« on: May 18, 2015, 22:01:07 pm »
My dd2 is 7 months old and suddenly started to refuse drinking from her bottle. I bf, but since she has been 4 weeks old she has had at least 1 bottle of ebm oer day. And now all of a sudden she just wont have any if it. She cries inconsolably. Anybody with a similar experience?

Yes dear, we went through that too. I feel for you, it's hard when ur LO won't eat. I breastfeed and my husband gives a bottle when I'm at work. We just kept offering it but not forcing it. Also we ended up dropping the number of bottles he had. We went from 5 to 4. And that helped for quite awhile. He just needed longer to get hungry.

Actually we're going through it again. He's gone from eating 30 oz per day to only 20 oz per day. So tomorrow we're going to try dropping from 4 to 3 bottles.

Not sure if this helps you at all. I just wanted you to know that you are not alone.
