My daughter is 5.5 months. She has had the occasional bottle of EBM or formula and took them really well. Now I have 2 issues. The first - I would like to gradually wean her from the breast - and I thought I'd drop one breast feed a day per week. However as soon as I attempted to give her a bottle she refused it! She has never done this before! She just plays with it in her mouth and chews it. I'v tried EBM and formula with no success (hubby tried as well).
My second issue is - she has zero interest in being spoon fed. I tried rice cereal both plain and with fruit mixed in and she hardly opens her mouth and when I do get some in she gags then vomits it all up.
So at the moment I've stopped all of it. Any suggestions?
My little boy was bottle fed from 8 weeks and I had no problems introducing food with him at all.
