    Hi Boots , my DS2 was the same. I found that warming the bottle would help to get him to take an extra 10-20ml per feed. The other thing I did was offer the bottle again after 10 minutes. Sometimes he would take a little more then. Good luck!

    Hi all thanks for the replies. Just updating this, We have decided to let DS feed himself alot more through BLW concept. In turn, he is drinking his bottles now i think i was over feeding him by spoon feeding and he was a guts and would never show signs he'd had enough!
    He is still eating 3 main meals, but as finger foods (loves an avocado sanga!) and snacks that he eats himself like bikkies, cheese, fruit ect.
    i offer his bottles 1.5hrs after his main meals (xcept the first morning bottle). He drinks water from a cup. has a really good food variety but as pp mentioned, its still not enough alone and his lil body still needs milk.
    Thanks again, problem solved!
