Hey there I have a question. Is anyone else having a problem with thier baby not drinking enough. He is 7.5 months old and is not down to drinking about 7 to 10 onz within a 24 hour period. First he started out not drinking much during the day only about 4 onz so I would wake up and go give him bottles while he was sleeping just to be able to get another 8 to 12 onz into him. Now he is not really interested in that either. Right now he is formula feed but not interested, also not interested in water or juice. So far today since 7:30 am he has only drank 5 onz and that was hard to get into him, Other than that and being slighlty backed up he is a very happy, seemingly healthy baby. I just dont understand why he is not interested in drinking anything....not from a bottle or a sippy cup Is it because he is teething? or because he is backed up? Is this a normal phase? Any ideas would be great. I make his cereal with his formula to make sure I get some into him but even that is only like 2 to 3 onz once a day. I tried not to give him too much cereal because he is already backed up. I am taking him into the docs tomorrow but wanted to see if anyone else has had this problem. Any help would be great...thank you.
