    Default 8 month old refusing bottles

    Atm itscoming into summer and its really hot
    My 8.5mo is lucky if hes having 3 bottles a day and hes hardly eating because hes teething so its hurting. He has half a weetbix and formula in the morning then maybe a couple of rice rusks through the day but he guzzles his water

    Im concerned hes not getting enough has anyone else had this problem in the heat? What did you do?

    Thanks for any advice

    I would try lots of cooled, stewed fruit. It's cooling on their gums and filled with water which is hydrating.

    Keep offering the bottles, you will find he will probably be back on them soon. As far as I know this is not unusual.

    Cold watermelon or cold cucumber sticks are great at that age for teething or just plain brown rice cakes that he can gum down on

    As pp said keep offering as they do go through fussy times or it could be a wonder week , if he is still putting on weight and has lots of wet Nappies he will be fine
