I have gone through half a container of formula wasting it....I make the usual 4 ounces, and Linden just won't eat....I think because of teething?? Maybe he just doesn't like the gentle ease formula? but othertimes he will down it...It's like he holds his meals for one huge meal...Siigh. Is there anything I can do? I'm just making 2 ounces at a time now so I stop having to throw out 4 ounces of formula.

Today, he kept spitting his bottles out like he wasn't hungry. But all day!

I ended up doing the same thing at one point...only making 2 oz bottles and giving her more as needed. Its alot less painful wasting 1 oz instead of 2 or 3 (or more!). Weren't you thinking about going between concentrate and powder? How did he tolerate that? If you've recently switched from the concentrate maybe its not agreeing with him?

I'll bet its the cold - when Kaylin had a cold, she had NO appetite and had a hard time breathing when she did eat
