    Default 15 mths old suddenly refusing bottle

    My son has been on 3 bottles of cows milk per day for most of this year and we have been dropping him down to 2 bottles.
    Things have been a bit out of sorts in our house with me being in hospital for a while. Then DS got sick and was given medicine for croup. I also think he is having a terrible time with teeth as he is drooling all over the place. About the same time (5-6 days ago) he started refusing milk from a bottle altogether.

    He doesn't seem to be drinking as much water either. I am really worried that he will get dehydrated.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    Have you tried getting him to have milk in a sippy or normal cup? Ones with a straw are usually better.

    I would stop offering a bottle and offer more water in a sippy cup. Maybe buy a new cup for him with characters on or somthing?

    Thanks, will buy one tomorrow and give it a go.

    It is just such a struggle and i feel like he still needs it. Maybe he is telling us he doesn't?!?
