So my son is about 6.5 months old and has been progressively getting less interested in feeding the last few days. Tonight to the point of not at all. About two sucks then that was it.
He doesn't have any teeth but chews on everything and rubs stuff on his bottom gum (rusks, my finger, teething toys etc) so I suspect that they are moving and bothering him a bit.
But I also went back to work last week for two days a week so he has had two bottles each day I have been at work (3 days) of EBM.
We use the medela calma so it is meant to make them work and suck the same way as nursing.
So is this a bottle preference or is it just a coincidence that it has started happening around the same time?
What do I do to get him back feeding? If he won't feed do I express and feed it to him or will that just encourage the refusal?
