My daughter all of a sudden didn't like taking her bottle with formula. It seemed to have happened over night. Went to warm up a bottle and she started to giggle like why was I trying to give her a bottle ... so I tried it cold in her bottle, still not taking it, I tried it in a sippy cup, nope still not taking it. Now this started at bout 10 months old. The only time she gets her formula is in her cereal at night . She just turned 11 months on the 21st so I decided to try 4% milk. Not taking that either and she gags on it lol warm and cold lol. Mentioned this to a nurse yesterday cause I was worried about her not getting enough calcium and fat that she needs and she suggested trying chocolate milk .. well it was worth a try and NOPE still not taking it lol. She eats all her jar food and she eats yogaurt. Id try her on more solids but she only has her 2 bottom teeth and 1 top tooth has just came out while the other top is almost out. Any other ideas on trying to get her to switch from formula to milk ...btw i did try weening her from going from 1 ounce milk and the rest formula still not happening she didn't want anything ... anyone else having this problem or any other ideas that may work ...

My daughter is 11 months old too and she is very rarely taking the bottle as well....I realized that when I warmed up her milk in her sippy cup she would not take it but if I did it cold then she will drink it..The only time I usually give her a bottle is when she is ready for a nap or something & then I warm it up as usual but I never let her keep it in her mouth..when I know that she is fast asleep than I stick the binky in her mouth but it eventually falls out. She drinks juice and water out of her sippy cups now more than anything..and I always give her cold formula in her sippy cup in the mornings with her breakfast.

They dont need mant teeth to eat solids just start by giving her small things like banana and avocado soft roast potato ect. If you are concerned about her choking start giving her teething rusks so she can get the hang of chewing on something then progress to soft things even mild cheese stick there are endless things you can give her

My little girl stopped drinking formula at the age of 5 and a half months and she is a happy and healthy little girl she is a year and almost one month old now she is hardly ever sick formula isnt all it is cutt out to be

My son started denying his bottle last week! He's 11 months. I figure it's close enough to a year to not fuss too much over it because they're supposed to be weaned from the bottle and formula at a year anyhow. He's eating much more at meal times tho and doing very well with table food. He has formula in the morning by cup and in his oatmeal and almost always before bed and I try to give it to him with meals. I also give him a vitamin the enfamil poly-vi-sol with iron to fill the gaps while we transition to strictly table food. Hope this helps! Good luck with your LO.

Sarah has been like this for a week or so & it worried me at first because I was worried she wasn't getting everything she needed. She then developed her first cold (not bad for 11 months) but that went from bad to worse when she then started refusing her solid food too. Any she did take was quickly brought back up again. I have taking to going back a phase in her soilds & having a small sippy cup of formula wherever I am. She chooses when she wants some & comes over for it.

my son started this at about 9 mos, i was told he still needs at least 16 oz of formula, to make up for what they dont get from solid foods, i satrted giving the bottle before the food, so hes hungry enough to take it! sometimes it works! dominic is now 11 mos, gets between 8 n 16 oz a day, most days! was also told u can hide it in foods, like jar foods and cereals, anyway u can get her to take it! at least thats what wic and my sons peditrician said!

I would start giving her real food now, I started my daughter on finger food at 8 months when she only had 2 teeth, if shes not drinking as much milk its ok as long as she is eating a balanced diet.
some of my daughters faves right now are,
Avacado, raspberrys, blueberrys, banana, blackberrys, mango, papaya, peas, corn, asparagus, califlower, potatoe, beans, Sweet peppers, chicken, beef, pork, ham, pasta, toast, bagles, cheerios, muffins
She eats everything we eat I just cut the bits up small enough that if one slid through she wont choke, she has to eat these foods to learn to chew :)
Good luck
