Hi! My bub has been cutting out bottles over the last week. She has been on 4 due to being a fussy drinker. She usually has around 600-700ml a day. The last two days will only have 1 bottle in the morning and also now a bit of milk in her cereal.. That is it - even refusing the dreamfeed now (that we were doing to get more in). So she gets between 80-250ml a day. Rang CHN 13HEALTH and she was concerned that it wasn't enough. She has done this sort of thing in the past when she isn't feeling well or has had needles, but this is the worst. She did get her first tooth this week.
She is eating and drinking water really well. She won't take the milk out of a sippy cup either... She is certainly not fading away!! Would you keep trying the bottles or just give it up now? Has anyone else had this happen with their child under 12 months and what did you do? It is starting to stress me out a little bit now because she isn't getting the quota that the CHNs recommend...
