    Default Ds (almost 10m) not really drinking much

    I have gone back to bottle first then solids second, but he will still only drink 100-150ml x 2 day and 80-100ml before bed.
    I read here about babies 9-11m drinking 4 x 180ml. I don't know what to do.

    He is on karicare stage 2. Is there maybe a yummier formula out there?!

    Babies can be lazy, is the teat flowing fast enough?

    He used to drink 200-380ml same teat a couple months ago. Now he is older I assumed he would be a stronger sucker.

    He might just be more interested in solids! DD dropped down her bottles pretty quickly once she got established on solid food. I think she was having 3 bottles of about 180/200ml but not finishing all of the bottle more often than not.

    Is he drinking water as well? Is he well hydrated?

    Yeah DD took ages to get into sippy cups. The Nuby ones work well for her. She loves her water now but it didn't really kick in until about 13mo or so.
