    He is otherwise a very happy and healthy bub, sleeps well etc.
    You can also add it to purée fruit and veg.
    Maybe try offering some in a sippy cup in place of water?

    My DS has always been a small milk drinker. When I was breast feeding the nurses didn't care because I couldn't prove it. We moved to solids and formula then they finally understood how little he drank but said it wasn't an issue if he was having enough solids. Just try to hide formula in his food if you can. You can't force feed a baby.

    I stopped bfeeding DD at 6 months and she'd never drink more than 100ml of formula - I tried all types. Was advised to keep up dairy foods and she'd inhale ricotta. I kept trying her then by 8 months she preferred formula over food.
    Just as you think you know what they want, they go and change

    How interesting, not tried ricotta yet. He loves yoghurt though.

    These babies like to keep us guessing. :-)
