    HI lilbird. Not sure if Ive got any fantastic answers for you but you can rest assured that you're not alone. My DS started fussing at 9 weeks, simply refused to drink even after 5 6 7 hrs, I would try and end up in tears. I started feeding him at bedtime instead, just to be sure he drank, and he would drink his bottle no problem at all. He's 6 months next week and he's still a PITA to feed. Some feed times he'll down the entire bottle, some I'm struggling to get 100 mls into him....me, I've stopped worrying about him becuase he's happy, he's alert, he's ahead in his miletones, he's commando crawling and he's gaining weight well.. so apparently he is taking exactly what he needs. At 12 weeks though, I would still be concerned. My boy has started solids, and while milk should be his number one form of nutrition i know he's not gonna starve.

    Could it be possible your bub has reflux? Have you taken her to the Dr? She may have a sore throat or something else thats stopping her from feeding. Try the feeding to sleep or while asleep thing until you get an answer. It worked for us and i know it has worked for many others here too.

    GL, hope it sorts itself out soon i know how frustrating it can be.

    i would check the teat to make sure that it flows ok with thickened formula. also make sure that the hole the milk comes out of, is not clogged.

    Have you thought of trying a different brand?? I had similar problem with DD..she was initilly drinking from tomme tippee bottle but all of sudden just refused to no matter how much I tried. After suggesions from hubbers I tried other brands and she's started drinking from pigeon slim neck with peristaltic valve (thanks for the tip Cue !!) which helps her control the flow.
