Ds has been taking 4 bottles 8 oz each every day for quite a while now. He has been on solids, and loves "real" food. The past 4 days he has been refusing to eat his afternoon bottle. If I am lucky I can get him to eat 3 oz of it. After spending over an hour of trying to get him to eat I have just given up, and given him some baby food. He seems to be just fine with that. He is only 9 months old tho. My other kids didn't start getting rid of bottles till they were closer to a year old. He has his 9 month appt today, so I will be talking to his Dr about it. I just want to know what you ladies think about it because I think his Dr is a complete idiot, and my insurance wont let me change Drs till his 1 year appt. He is still on the extra calorie formula since he was born early, so maybe that has something to do with it? What do you all think?

I'm not sure if formula is different but it sounds like some type of a strike to me. Camden refused to nurse for longer than like 5 minutes at a time last week and it drove me nuts! He's been eating better the past few days thankfully but i think they just sometimes go through phases like this. If it were me i wouldn't try to force him to take a bottle but just keep offering it to him. When Cam refuses to nurse i just stop and take a break and try again in a little while.

A lot of babies go on nursing and/or bottle strikes when they're teething. They're not trying to wean, but sucking hurts their gums. Usually you just try again a bit later and keep offering the bottle, or breast.
