My baby is seventh month old. No sigh of teething. She is refusing to take formula milk at night. Before she used to dring 300 ml at night but from last four days it reduced to 60 ml.I am really worried. She started taking solid from last month.If anybody has any suggestions please let me know.

My daughter is the same way...so my dr. suggested just mixing her formula in with her solids and it works great. She only takes a bottle 2x a day...first thing in the morning and before bed; other than that, she gets her fluids in with her solids. She is gaining weight and her development is right on target so while I think it is strange, my dr. is not concerned at all. She said she has seen this before and eventually when she is on a sippy cup she will drink more.

i have 7 mth old girl and boy twins.....my son has been going through stage when he will only eat his solids and not drink milk...i just let him alone made sure i was giving him him enough nutrients through food and plenty of juice and water....he would still have a bottle half way through the night though...now hes back on 2 bottle during the day one for sleep and one during the night....

Yes, my son doesn't want to nurse as often now that he's taking solids well. I'm just trying to space things out so I can nurse him when he's hungry. It's difficult, though! I'm a little worried about losing my supply & occasionally have to pump.
we went through a phase there... it would take us up to an hour of mini sips to finish a whole bottle!
we just started to offer her the bottle twice with 10mins inbetween... and didnt feed her again til her next bottle was due (we are three hourly still so it was never long). after 2 days she realised if she didnt drink it that was it... no she skulls her bottles... if she does get fussy we know that the next bottle she will drink it all.
